How Do You Lead? (Video)

By | September 27, 2015

Maybe sales are slow, new listings are down or interest rate increases are choking off mortgage pre-qualifications…How do you react?

Yesterday, in a related article concerning how well someone may compete in business, solutions for dealing successfully with inevitable adversity were discussed (Do You Compete Like A Champion?)!

Today’s Thought? What Type Of Corporate Leader Are You?

When a critical issue arises in your business, one that needs to be addressed immediately and decisively, how do you react?

Do you show panic, appear as if you are a deer in the headlights or perhaps does your face contort in horror?

In other words, what type of leader do your employees, your supervisor, your co-managers and/or your customers see?

Do you react like the kids in this video?

Or, do you take lead in the way that some of the quotes below suggest?

Hopefully the answer is that you are the latter but, if not, there is always time to try and do better in the future!
