I link the tasks my team is responsible for to the bigger picture: meaning to our donors and, ultimately, to the patients who receive our medicines. No matter how trivial a task may seem, when it is tied to a loftier goal, the team is more likely to do a better job and feel better about their work in the process.
For me, leadership means standing up, sometimes even alone, to remove roadblocks and provide opportunities for team members and colleagues to be successful. Bottom line: a leader is only successful if his or her team is successful too.
