It's such a privileged position, and as Uncle Ben said in Spiderman, “With great power comes great responsibility.”
Except, many leaders don't know how to use that power effectively to influence others in a positive way and to get things done.
And as we all know, and have probably been on the receiving end of, there are many leaders who misuse their power, dump responsibility on everyone else, and really shouldn't be anywhere near a leadership position.
I don't know about you but when I got my first formal leadership position, aged 16, the first thing that came into my head was “Oh no. Me?” It was leading a group of 80+ schoolmates as captain of the schoolhouse, all with their own opinions and with their testosterone at sky-high levels.
