Why bother?

Why bother trying to be a better leader? It’s a lot of work.

But if you can …

  • gather the right people for the right jobs,
  • make each individual feel listened to and respected,
  • create an atmosphere where everyone knows why you do what you do and what their role is in it,
  • foster a culture where people respect and care for the success of one another,

Then you will create something special. Something rarely seen.

Great leaders are not the ones you hear about. Great leadership is not taking names and kicking butts and becoming famous.  Great leadership does not offer fame and fortune.

What great leadership does offer is an incredible feeling of having helped another person. No matter what industry you are in, no matter how unsexy what you do is, the rewards of knowing you have made a real difference in the life of another person is immeasurable. A great leader gets good at helping others and as they get better at it they are able to help more people.

Seems pretty inspiring to me.
