Leaders Are Always On Stage

March 21st, 2016 § 0 comments

“Leadership is a matter of having people look at you and gain confidence, seeing how you react. If you are in control, they’re in control.”

 —Tom Landry 

From the moment you step into a leadership role, you are on a stage. Your team is watching every move you make, taking cues about what’s important or how to respond. As you rise to even higher levels within the organization the number of people observing your actions increases exponentially.

As a leader you must understand and accept this reality. Make it a point to pause and consider the message you are sending, especially during crisis. If you remain calm, your team will remain calm and everyone will respond effectively.

Embrace the opportunity to model for your team how to respond to challenging situations with composure. By doing so you will develop a resilient team capable of handling any challenge thrown their way.

What message is your leadership sending?

Make it an excellent week!
