Leading in Tough Times

In my many years of leadership consulting I’ve encountered good times and tough times. Often, circumstances like a struggling economy or having to deal with a less than committed customer have been out of my control.

The Proactive Leader

One of the most important attributes a leader can possess is to be proactive. Instead of the business coming to him or her, the proactive leader takes the initiative and goes and gets it. Instead waiting for a problem to fix itself, the proactive leader has the ability to cut to the chase and address the problem before it evolves into an even greater challenge. The proactive leader is on the cutting edge of self-leadership: he or she makes an intentional effort to lead one’s own self.
