Overall, a leader does not force followers to conform to one method or philosophy. Promoting your own image and convincing others to fit your mold is not leadership. Leadership is not about finding others to support a one-sided cause/method. A leader is someone who guides people to not only become better versions of themselves, but also encourages them to think critically for themselves. Personal achievements are great tools in extrinsic motivation, but the progression to a goal will take a whole lot more. This is why it is so important to embrace working with and taking care of others as a leader. It forces a leader to never stop learning about that which makes them a leader: other people.
