Positive energy is essential when leading a large organization or a small team.
Optimism and enthusiasm are two key traits of a resilient person. Like any other trait, they must be exercised in order to become a strong part of one’s make-up.
Master psychologist and hall of fame pro football coach, Vince Lombardi, famously said, “The greatest success is not in never falling, but it is in rising every time you fall.”
Anyone who has ever led anything will tell you that at some point in time the organization you lead will face adversity. For that matter, every living person faces adversity at some point in their life. It all comes down to how prepared one is to face these challenges and how one responds.
A leader must prepare themselves and their followers to overcome challenges.
A leader must be psychologically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually fit.
Leading an organization of any size takes rigor and one must lead by example.
A leader must take care of their own inner well-being before they can take care of others.
