Why do you want to lead? Your answer makes the difference.

Leaders only get into the leadership business for one of two reasons. One, for their own ego, or two, to benefit others.

Ego is a strong lure, and being thrust into a position of what looks like power can be like an aphrodisiac. Resist it. Ego leaders inevitably fail because the good people see through it and leave. Ego leaders end with weak teams.

The only authentic reason to lead is to benefit others. People follow worthwhile visions. People follow people who are in it with them. People follow people who help them be their best. Authentic leaders deliver results and build strong teams.

Getting into the leadership game is easy. Getting results is not. Tip: It’s easier if you do it for the right reasons.
