Empower your people, work as a team and invest in your employees: these are some of the words of wisdom the Ruler of Dubai has shared to millions of followers.

In the latest in a series of a summer messages, many starting with 'life has taught me' Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, who is also the Vice President and Prime Minister, shared his thoughts with 8.3 million users on Twitter.

"Life has taught me that some enterprises rely on a single leader, others rely on a team. But a one man show enterprise is temporary…

"Great organisations invest the most in the well-being of their people, as great leaders nurture and invest in the leaders yet to come."

He also touched on the experience of those in leadership positions, writing: "A leader’s legacy endures when he empowers his people, spreads the virtues of loyalty and cohesion and plants the seeds of innovation."

Earlier this month, Sheikh Mohammed posted an article on LinkedIn focused on countries' need to spur their own growth and drive their own development.

"The world waits for no one – those who do not learn and evolve can stumble and often fall," he wrote.

"Nations, like people, need change to grow and develop. Some governments live in the past, many struggle with the present – a few are building the future."
