Within the learning process of leadership one of the things that attracted me in this area was the relationship between rewards and satisfaction. Commonly it is thought that both of them are the same thing or that the second one is directly produced by the first one. Honestly I was one of those that though in that way; nevertheless after reflecting about this topic I found interesting that it is really possible to cut that relationship and to separate both concepts. Satisfaction should be a complete state of mind, a constant sensation during work, although people cannot have the same enthusiasm all the time, it is important that this element is conceived as feeling good with what we do in our jobs and feeling good with our teammates.
At the end, when we look backwards we find that that entire context is the best reward ever. And this is a leader's important characteristic. Leaders work towards common benefit towards group results and satisfaction that is what makes good leaders. Rewards will probably come next, but surely they wouldn't have meaning without having collective action.
