"Courage is not the absence of fear. It is going forward with the face of fear." Abraham Lincoln
With the current ever changing global business environment, there are plenty of obstacles keeping you, your team and your clients from moving forward with certainty. There's no one best practice to help us navigate this complex world or show us how to lead our companies most effectively. But when we show up with empathy and optimism even when it can't be justified, that helps others focus on what they can control instead of becoming consumed by the chaos.
This brave act alone will make a world of difference.
When times get tough, leaders either get really big or really small.
Getting big means being visible and overcommunicating during a crisis.
Leading effectively motivates teams to stay focused and aligned amid uncertainty. Clients are reassured and know that you’ve got their backs.
People look to you for guidance during times of confusion and panic. How you choose to think and act will define how you get through this. You know how to lead a team through a crisis, now is the time to double down with your authentic, powerful leadership talents.
Some are thriving and playing big. Others are contracting and playing small. It’s your choice, choose big!
The smart leaders I’m working with are thinking expansively and thriving despite the obstacles. Let’s see how you can do this too!
