Leadership Is Not a Right

Description

Like many things in life, leadership is a choice.

Like many things in life, leadership is a choice. Those in leadership positions have made a choice to be there. One can freely seek the mantle of leadership and one can just as easily leave a position of leadership. One of the problems is that some seek leadership for the wrong reasons. Sometimes a decision to seek a position of leadership is based on things such as money, power, or prestige. These individuals may not be focused on the interests of others. Instead they are fixated on their own rights and responsibilities that they derive from the position. True leaders realize that leadership is not about rights, it is about the awesome responsibility that comes with the job; the responsibility to focus on the needs of others; to be selfless, not selfish.

What is your focus of leadership, rights or responsibilities?
