Leadership is Sacrifice

A view on sacrifice.
“The heart of good leadership is sacrifice.” – John Maxwell –
I don’t agree with everything that the good John Maxwell writes, but I completely agree with this. At its heart, leadership is sacrifice. It is sacrifice of the self for the mission, first and foremost, and then for that which makes accomplishment of the mission possible, the followers. The great leader is the one who pours himself out on behalf of his followers, who is unafraid to sacrifice personal pleasure, profit, gain, reward, recognition, or esteem to do what he is responsible for doing.
