OPTIMISM, HOPE, ENJOYMENT, HUMOR, LOVING PEOPLE, PLAYFUL, LAUGHING AT LIFE
Don’t you feel better just reading those words?
People want these qualities in a leader.
Yes, you need all the skills of leading–strategic thinking, communication, delegation, innovation, blah-blah-blah. You know these.
But people also want all of the above personal qualities in the person who is their leader.
Our workplaces and world has become grim. Positive words from a leader are often a fake marketing facade. Reality is tough. Leading has become about pulling, tugging, scaring, forcing, people. Energy lags. There is a chronic hopelessness.
Try some warmth and nurture and a metaphorical hug for your company:
Positive, grateful, human:
Laughing at life
This is where energy comes from to be directed for results that then invigorate a company.
