Are YOU Leadership Material?

Are YOU Leadership Material? | Maximizing Human Potential | Scoop.it
I really enjoy mentoring young professionals. It's one of my passions. Most reach out to me because they say that they want to be a CEO one day. In response, my first question is always, "Why?"

Then, I ask, "How much do you value being liked?" Leadership naturally attracts haters, naysayers, and opponents. Then, I ask, "How hard are you willing to work?" As a leader, I work practically all the time. These questions, make up what I call this "The Motivation Test".
