Be a Positive Leader – Help People be Their Best and Hold Them Accountable
We need more positive leaders in the world, leaders who inspire and accomplish more. Positive leaders get more out of their people and motivate them to discover their grit and be their best. Do you know what the #1 predictor of success is? Over talent, title, wealth or appearance, grit will get you to a successful finish line nearly every time. The positive leader has grit because positive leadership is serious, hard work that requires daily, focused determination. No Pollyanna, unicorns or rainbows here. Leaders and teams who lose their ‘Super Bowl,’ the ‘big one,’ don’t wallow in their loss, but they look forward to future victories. And while those future victories are sweet, the positive leader doesn’t consider them the ultimate victory. They also take that positivity to other areas of their life and focus on being great spouses, parents, siblings and friends. Do you consider yourself a positive individual, or are you allowing negativity to get the upper hand? Don’t beat yourself up over negativity and be diligent in putting it behind you and looking for the positive. Uncover the grit that is essential to successful, positive leaders and you will have uncovered the #1 predictor of your success.
