Are you Prepared for Your Worst?
At our best, most of us are very good. We are effective leaders, we bring out the best in others. We are disciplined, decisive, committed, engaged, inspiring, and authentic.
At our worst, we can be pretty bad.
We are less than ineffective leaders, we are destructive. We are unproductive, we pull others down. We are weak willed, indecisive, uncommitted, disengaged or worse, discouraging, and fake.
Are you prepare for your worst?
Start your preparations now...
- Plan your positive response to negative situations you are likely to face.
- Be prepared to re-double your efforts when others are disengaging.
- Be ready to create when others are reacting.
Let's take the advice of Maya Angelou and live life, "Hoping for the best, prepared for the worst, and unsurprised by anything in between."
