All high performing leaders are incredibly ambitious.
What makes their ambition different and in turn helps them rally followers and supporters around them is that their ambition is for a “just cause” not for self.
When followers are shown a futuristic “just cause” for achieving something larger than themselves it can lead to a big impact.This is when followers get viscerally involved to realize something in order to achieve fulfillment in their lives.
Thus when ambition is directly towards the betterment of a company , a just cause it has far reaching impact.
