"Great leaders believe they work for their team; average leaders believe their team works for them."
Leaders are accountable for the success and livelihoods of dozens, hundreds, or thousands of people. But unfortunately, many people view leadership as a means to hold power and authority over people. I have often seen a certain level of arrogance and entitlement exhibited by people in these positions.
They feel superior to those in their employ or at so-called lower levels in the organization while in the process, creating a very toxic work environment. Leaders must always remember that leadership is a privilege because when you're in that leadership role, your influence may impact the trajectory of peoples' entire careers and often their lives.
