What it means to be a leader
“If we expect to be leaders, we must see that thankless service comes with the job. We must do what leaders do because it’s what leaders do—not for the credit, not for the thanks, not for the recognition. It’s our duty.”
— The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday, Stephen Hanselman
Leadership roles are indeed thankless jobs. However, great leaders are the ones to take up leadership roles to serve others and for the greater good. And true leader dares to act on their values and principles even when it might not be a popular move.
