Leaders eat last. Its so true. As a father, my wife and kids are always to eat first. I make sure all their needs and wants are met first before mine. I need to know that they will be taken care of then I can worry about myself.
I never thought of leadership as parenthood, however, it made complete sense. Both require the individual to think of someone other than himself or herself. They are responsible for another person. As a good leader, you put the needs of others ahead of your own and you are willing to help them become better. You protect the individuals who are within your command and provide them the tools they need to accomplish their goals. An individual also chooses to become a leader. These are all qualities and skills of parents (Spain, 2017).
