Do you ever get discouraged trying to lead your team forward? I know, they give you challenges that annoy you. They forget what you've already taught them. They miss time after time after time.
And yet, they also bring a smile to your face. They surprise you with an insight that goes far beyond anything you've ever taught. They connect with customers in ways that reflect how YOU feel. They also bring you joy.
Up and down. Down and up. Leadership is one challenge after another, randomly peppered with joy.
If leading was easy they wouldn't have to pay people for it. But if there weren't rewards far beyond the money, no one would do it.
Leading is tough. Leadership is the best.
