Two Motives

“At the most fundamental level, there are only two motives that drive people to become a leader. First, they want to serve others, to do whatever is necessary to bring about something good for the people they lead.

The second basic reason why people choose to be a leader—the all-too-common but invalid one—is that they want to be rewarded.”

This is a book I highly recommend to you to add to your library but, more importantly, to read and to use to examine just why you are a leader.
