It’s not about you

Many people move into management/leadership roles for their own gain. They think ‘I am now at the top of my game’, ‘next step on the ladder is naturally management’. These views could be classed as selfish. The role is perceived to be about you and your title.

What should it be? Leadership is what can you do for others. In order to be a good leader you must serve. Just like in order to be a good friend you serve your friends, in order to be a good restaurant you serve your customers. It doesn’t mean that you do all the work; the art of leadership is to be the catalyst that extracts the hidden talents of the people in your team.
