Leadership is tough. Without a deep sense of meaning you’re probably going to give up long before you’ve reach your destination.
You should never embark on the challenging task of leadership without a deep sense of meaning. Meaning is at the very foundation of great leadership. One person who knew the importance of meaning is holocaust survivor, Viktor Frankl.
In September 1942, Viktor Frankl, a Jewish psychiatrist and neurologist in Vienna, was arrested and incarcerated in a Nazi concentration camp, along with his wife and parents. Although Frankl was released in April 1945, his mother Elsa and brother Walter died at Auschwitz and his wife died in Bergen-Belsen.
