Pragmatic…uses common sense…listens to others…flexible…respectful…takes time to thank people…these are traits and actions that impact the way we are perceived and our ability to effectively lead projects and teams. I've tried to personify these things throughout my career, sometimes successfully and sometimes not. I believe good leaders constantly focus on honing these kinds of skills. These are things we can control and practice and continuously improve --
things any of us can do!
This blog will focus on what each of us can do to be leaders in our own lives and careers. Really good leaders possess the ability to adapt to what life throws at them and remain calm in the midst of chaos. And the good news is that we all have it in us to improve our ability to adapt. Simple changes in how we tackle communication, manage meetings, and listen to colleagues and customers can make a real difference. We’ll explore those things in this blog and hopefully you’ll find a nugget here and there that you can use in your daily life to help you Adapt. Lead. Succeed.
