“A great leader encompasses compassion and courage of your job and your employees. If I’m going to lead them, then I must learn to learn to lead by correcting what’s not working and employ what does work under stress. His comment, ‘we all revert to the level of behaviors we’ve mastered under stress,’ really resonated with me. I think I’m a good leader when things are going well. What I’ve learned is when multiple priorities, deadlines and issues above and below me mount, then I do revert back to less than elegant leadership. The Academy gives me the skills I need to be my best!”Please follow and like us:
“Let me start with the Leaders Dashboard – the low-tech approach is giving me high-tech and high-touch results!
