Luke 6:32 – 6:36 NKJV
32 “But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. 35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. 36 Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.
“You also have to be able to figure out how to share credit for your success with your inner team so that they feel a part of a mission. Basically, you want to create a reservoir of good feeling, and that involves not only acknowledging your errors but even shouldering the blame for the failures of some of your subordinates. Again and again, Lincoln took responsibility for what he did, and he shared responsibility for the mistakes of others, and so people became very loyal to him.”
Henry has revealed how in his early career, he would blame others for failing to pass to him, a trait that Wenger encouraged him to lose.
“One of the best [pieces of] advice I have received in my career was from Arsene, who told me: ‘Stop asking yourself the wrong question’,” the former Gunners striker told Unisport.
“What he means by that is, I would’ve said to myself: ‘Oh, he didn’t see me, oh, he didn’t pass me the ball.’ I would have always talked about you [the team-mate].
“Arsene said to me: ‘What could you have done for him to see you?’
“I was always aware of what can you do to help [the team-mate]. Instead of arguing, I’d try to find a way to make you better.”
