As you are climbing the career ladder towards senior management and leadership roles, it can sometimes feel like you are doing all of the hard work while the more senior people are cruising.
While you will without doubt be working hard, some of the delusions I have noticed people having about leading include:
People Respect You More
It Is All Strategic
You Don’t Need To Make Sacrifices
The Bottom Line: Leadership is not for the faint hearted so make sure you step into a leadership role with your eyes open.
