“At a deeper level, men and women sometimes choose leadership because of what its challenges and struggles mean to them. This is because responsible leadership is a good struggle. It is a long, rigorous challenge that tests their competence and their characters fully, gives purpose and intensity to their lives, and helps them lead the kind of lives they really value.” –  Joseph L. Badaracco Jr.
