"The primary motivation to become a leader should be the inner satisfaction that comes from giving of yourself to create, mould and nurture competence in a work group or organisation. The size of the accomplishment is not what is important. Rather, it is the creation of something of worth or value in this world. It could be as small as being a mentor for a promising young manager or as large as turning around an unprofitable company. On the other hand, when the quest for wealth, status or acclaim of others supersedes the inner satisfaction motive, a failure of leadership inevitably follows."
