Key Leadership Takeaways:

  • Define reality; Perception of what you and others can do is critically important.
  • Authenticity as a leader is the foundation for trust within the team
  • Character matters

Leader Action Plan:

  • Understanding your inherent personality traits is an important factor in becoming self-aware in how your strengths and weaknesses affect your ability to lead. If you have not already done so, take a personality assessment and learn how to apply it within a leadership context.
  • Leaders always find a way to win. Never give up and become a “yes we can” type of leader.
