Recently I came across this quote “Great leaders don’t set out to be a leader. They set out to make a difference. It’s never about the role, always about the goal.” and it got me thinking about all the different supervisors I’ve had in the past.
Like most, I’ve had both great and not so great leadership which helped me define how I wanted to be. When I took my first supervisor position, I knew I wanted to be someone that made a difference to those who reported to me.
Quote Meaning to Me
This quote is everything I represent and how I want to be portrayed by my employees and other team members.
I’ve never taken a position to get a job title, for money, or the recognition. I’ve always wanted to make a difference in the lives of others, and I’ve let this guide me in the most significant decisions in my life.
Leadership is present in parenting, office work, helping our children, and many other aspects of our lives. When we are interacting with others, we need to consider who we lean on and ensure they have our best interests in mind.
