Leadership is important to your company because it causes managers to make an emotional commitment to their jobs, not just a financial or intellectual commitment. When your job becomes a source of personal value fulfillment for you, you’re going to protect that source by making your company successful. But that’s not why you should be a leader. As a manager your most important responsibility is to your company. As a leader your most important responsibility is to yourself. This is the single most supportive corporate action you can take. That’s why people become leaders, to fulfill their personal values. After all it’s not easy being a leader!
