“The most important characteristic of a leader is optimism.”—Bob Iger, CEO of Disney”
Leadership is most important when faced with adversity and challenge. Leadership is required when events create opportunities. Leaders step-up, empower collaboration, and inspire innovation.
No one wants to work for a negative leader. No one is inspired by dictatorial tactics. Leaders bring an air of positivity to the room. Leaders remove barriers and empower problem solving. Leaders acknowledge the challenges and build the team up to see them as opportunities for success.
