Leadership in Tough Times
In these uncertain times we follow those who....
..are calm in the face of turbulence (Calmness)
..can listen, discern and act (Listening)
..are measured in their response, never erratic (Measured)
..are resilient and unwavering under pressure (Resilient).
With these 4 traits under control we can then unleash power of no. 5 - VISION.
A leader who demonstrates the first 4 traits and then delivers no. 5 will receive trust, belief, attention and engaged followers.
It has been a pleasure this last week for Justin Caffrey and I to work with wonderful organisations such as the Institute of International & European Affairs.
- with many thanks to Fiona O'Sullivan and her team and with the Irish Centre for Business Excellence- thanks to Linda Barron and her team.
