Leaders know there will be days when they no longer want to lead. Leadership is difficult and ungrateful at times. But what can we do about that?
A fellow leader brought this up during a recent coffee outing. He’s finding himself frustrated with his leadership position. There are feelings that things are going no where and he can’t change them.
Upper management doesn’t want to take on new ideas to increase their influence. Those he’s leading aren’t performing up to standard.
This is when he said “Leadership sucks. I’m not liking this.”
I think any leader that’s been around long enough has felt this way. They know there are leadership struggles every leader will face.
So what makes these leaders continue on the leadership journey? Are they superhuman or have some sort of magical power?
