Why We Choose to Lead


Leadership is not a position or a title. It is a choice and a responsibility. Leadership is not something that is given to us or imposed on us. It is something that we decide to pursue and embrace.


Why do we choose to lead? What motivates us to take on the challenges and opportunities of leadership? What drives us to make a positive difference in the world?


There are many possible answers to these questions, and each one of us may have our own reasons and passions for leadership. But here are some common themes that I have observed and experienced in my own leadership journey:


- We choose to lead because we have a vision. We see a gap between what is and what could be, and we want to bridge that gap. We have a clear picture of the future we want to create, and we are willing to work hard to make it happen.


- We choose to lead because we have a mission. We have a purpose that is bigger than ourselves, and we want to serve that purpose. We have a cause that we care deeply about, and we want to contribute to that cause. We have a problem that we want to solve, and we want to find the best solution.


- We choose to lead because we have a passion. We love what we do, and we do what we love. We are enthusiastic about our work, and we want to share that enthusiasm with others. We are excited about our possibilities, and we want to inspire others to join us.


- We choose to lead because we have a value. We have a set of principles and beliefs that guide our actions and decisions. We have a sense of integrity and ethics that define our character. We have a standard of excellence and quality that shapes our performance.


- We choose to lead because we have a growth mindset. We are always learning and improving ourselves, and we want to help others do the same. We are open to feedback and criticism, and we use them as opportunities to grow. We are curious and creative, and we seek new ideas and perspectives.


- We choose to lead because we have a team spirit. We know that we cannot succeed alone, and we need the support and collaboration of others. We value diversity and inclusion, and we respect the differences and strengths of others. We build trust and relationships, and we empower and motivate others.

These are some of the reasons why I choose to lead, and why I believe leadership is a rewarding and fulfilling experience. What about you? Why do you choose to lead? What are your sources of motivation and inspiration for leadership?
