Leadership Minute: Pleased to Lead

pleasant

Elbert Hubbard said, “Be pleasant until ten o’clock in the morning and the rest of the day will take care of itself.” This humorous quip is a reminder of one of the essentials of leadership. We often think of leadership in terms of competencies and skills. After all, we tend to measure leadership by results. But lest we forget, there is a characteristic of leadership that is equally as important. Are you a pleasant person to be around? Your disposition is a complement to your leadership position. When you are pleasant toward others it creates the atmosphere needed for everyone to succeed. Be pleasant.
