Why are you attracted to leadership - are you suited to leadership or are there other pathways and roles that suit you better?

Case study: too much, too young!  Achieving leadership at an early age sounds exciting and inspiring.  In fact, taking on this role proved to a step too far at a time when work/life balance was also important.  One young association executive tells their story and explains why they stepped back from a leadership role and regained their sense of purpose.

Why are you attracted to leadership - are you suited to leadership or are there other pathways and roles that suit you better?

Case study: too much, too young!  Achieving leadership at an early age sounds exciting and inspiring.  In fact, taking on this role proved to a step too far at a time when work/life balance was also important.  One young association executive tells their story and explains why they stepped back from a leadership role and regained their sense of purpose.
