Leaders end up in leadership roles for all kinds of reasons. Sometimes they get there accidentally because they got a tap on the shoulder. Some leaders take on the responsibility because they want the title and salary that goes with it. We appreciate those who work hard on themselves and earn the right to call themselves a leader. Then there are those who were born to show us the way, and being an inspiring and results focused leader is in their DNA. What we know for sure is, regardless of how they got there, they'd better know how to sustain their own energy and focus because no one is coming to do that for them.
