Except the part where you have to actually be the leader.
You often get saddled with some tough decisions but you have to weigh your options, take a look at who you’re leading and what you’ve promised to them as a plan, ideal or direction and do your best to live up to it.
Often, that comes at a cost which has to be weighed against everything else and you often have to make hard decisions. These decisions can, and often do, impact people you like in a negative way.
But the decisions still need to be made.
This is why managers and supervisors don’t tend to get invited to non-company parties hosted by their underlings.
Calling them ‘underlings’ probably doesn’t help much either.
