One of the things that has shaped my approach toward managing people the most was told to me by Clayton Christensen (Harvard Business Professor): "People usually think that in order to help people you should become a doctor or a nurse or a teacher. But, if you really want a career that will impact people's lives the most, become a Manager. As a Manager, you directly impact the quality of people's lives more than anyone, except perhaps their spouse." I agree completely. It's an awesome responsibility.
