Leadership is not an easy job – but it can bring great fulfillment and satisfaction. Bill George, former CEO of Medtronic and now Harvard Business professor, captured it very well when he said:
“There is no satisfaction in your professional life that can compare to this… No individual achievement can equal the pleasure of leading a group of people to achieve a worthy goal. When you cross the finish line together, all the pain and suffering you may have experienced quickly vanishes. It is replaced by a deep inner satisfaction that you made a difference.”
It’s all worth it!
