When you are a leader, knowing some of the expectations that your followers are looking at will determine if you are considered a good leader or not. And being liked and loved is something leaders should NOT strive for, as your leadership role is not a popularity contest. It doesn’t mean that you have to be hated to be a good leader, but being liked, loved and pleasing all of your followers is not an objective for a leader, it just comes natural if a leader is liked, loved and pleases followers. Your leadership role is to fulfill a mission for the greater good and sometimes can make followers unhappy when some of your decisions are not aligned with their expectations. Keeping your team focused on the mission is a leader’s main objective.
