3 Takeaways For Leaders:
1. Inspiration is not a personality type. No matter what your personality is, you can inspire others. One of the greatest things that divert us from being great leaders is great excuses.
2. Celebrate what it is you can celebrate. In every loss, you can find some wins.
3. Great leaders have the ability to manage tension. Ask yourself, is the pain they’re feeling driving them with more urgency for the future?
