#leadershiptruth – Leadership. It’s complicated.

Posted August 1, 2017 in Latest News & Insights

Whenever people tell me they want to be a leader, I always ask them ‘why’? Leadership isn’t easy. It’s usually pretty thankless. People will always have a list of things you should be doing better. And of course, what’s on some people’s lists (listen better) is not on others (speak up more). Leadership is a rollercoaster ride of high times and low points and when things go right, your team will get the credit and when things go wrong, you’ll take the blame. And everyone will tell you that you should be happy about that (when inside you’re in need of recognition as much as the next person). Yes, leadership is gratifying. It’s amazing to see people blossom and to be able to guide and shape direction. I absolutely love leading but I would be lying if I didn’t say that there are days when I wish I didn’t feel as passionately about leadership. It might make life a little less complicated.
