Leadership is the lifeblood of any organization, and any leader worth their value knows that their team comes first. When you sign up for leadership, you are now responsible for the lives of others, and it comes at a great personal sacrifice, according to Simon Sinek. However, the risk is real because you bear full responsibility for your team's actions when things go wrong.
According to Simon, leadership can be compared to parenting because parents will sacrifice their lives to ensure their children are successful; it's the same with our leadership and the sacrifices we must make to ensure our team is successful. But, unfortunately, leadership is not for the faint of heart, and you can now understand why many organizations are grossly over-managed and significantly under-led.
