THE LEADER’S JOURNEY – WALKING THE FINE LINE BETWEEN OPTIMISM AND DELUSION
To create a lasting legacy, all speakers need to be leaders – but what if I’m not an expert in Leadership? What if my message never makes the impact that I know it could? What do I need to do, to step up as a leader – of myself, my business and my audiences – to create a legacy?
The journey to becoming a speaker of significance is not an easy one, but it is well worth the effort. When obstacles occur and challenges arise, it’s critical to have a strategy, key skills and the personal resilience to hold the path.
There’s a delicate balance between believing that everything will work out well and operating accordingly…and maintaining that approach beyond the point when common sense dictates that a change of strategy is required.
As speakers, we need to walk a fine line between maintaining a success-focused approach and not letting false positives create potential damage!
