Leaders who understand that leading others is a privilege also understand that leading is first and foremost about service.

Too many people feel that having a position of leadership and authority is their God-given right.

They feel superior to those in their employ or at so-called lower levels in the organization.

I have often seen a certain level of arrogance and entitlement exhibited by people in leadership positions.

Remember being the leader means that you have been placed in a position to serve others; it has nothing to do with you; leaders are accountable for the success and livelihoods of dozens, hundreds, or thousands of people.

They should never forget this fact and never act in a cavalier fashion.

Their decisions, actions, and how they carry themselves impact a large and diverse community.

Leaders should focus on serving their teams first because real leaders forget about themselves and instinctively react in their team’s best interest.
