Leadership Minute: Keep Your Composure

composure

The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. – James Allen

As a leader, how you respond when things do not happen as you’d like is your moment to either build confidence with your team or send the wrong signal. The leader who keeps his composure is the one who delivers much needed confidence. And in the midst of turbulent times you can communicate the message that, in spite of the circumstances, things are going to be fine. How you handle the unexpected and conflict is your moment to shine. Regardless of how chaotic things may get you can lead your team with a steady hand when you are clear-minded and keep your composure.
