If you aspire to lead, a question:
Do you need evidence everything is going to be “okay” before you function with confidence? Or do you function with confidence . . . as a mechanism to ensuring everything turns out alright?
It’s impossible to guide others through adversity if you can’t self-manage yourself when under pressure. (Yet many attempt this feat daily.)
You know it when you see it: A person walks in the room, with crisis swirling about them, yet they remain at ease. Their actions tell the world: I’ve been here before and I know what to do.
Critics will argue, “But you haven’t been here prior, because this sort of crisis has never occurred!”
Laugh at them. You have experienced predicaments before. You know that:
– You deliver value to others by living your values.
– By staying focused, the crisis at hand will birth a new solution.
– You’re on a team that is stronger than the obstacle. (Therefore, activate the team.)
You are the person in demand.
