As You Climb the Ladder of Success, Ensure it’s Leaning Against the Right Wall

Andy Faulkner the Head of St Olave’s School, York started a great debate which resurrected this theme.

I know far too many leaders who think themselves successful; based on the trappings of power, and the sycophantic comments of others.

However on closer inspection they are not happy and actually have lost their moral compass and sense of what gives them life purpose.

The job pays them well, yet they are not really fulfilled nor do they bring out the best in others.
So I ask you: what gives you a sense of purpose and fulfilment?

Think about it carefully; it is one of those life questions that won’t go away.

Warm regards
Jonathan
