Our reader poll today asks: Which of the following excites you the most about being a leader?
- Having an ability to positively influence and grow our business: 40%
- Developing the next generation of leaders: 29%
- Learning and growing personally and professionally: 23%
- Getting to call the shots and make decisions: 4%
- Greater compensation: 4%
It’s all about growth. Whether you’re interested in expanding the business, developing your people, or improving yourself, leadership is the place to do it. Sure, there are a few folks who are in it to be the boss, call the shots and make some cash but the tremendous majority of you want to make things bigger and better than when you found them. I challenge you to find growth opportunities in all three of these arenas.
