Leadership Minute: Composure or Consequences


duck example is good.

Doug Dickerson on Leadership


Always keep your composure. You can’t score from the penalty box; and to win, you have to score. – Horace

Your composure is the single greatest external sign of your leadership style. While internally you may be anything but calm it is by maintaining your composure that you can sum up the situation you are dealing with, figure out the right response, and mobilize appropriate personnel and resources to deal with it. By failing to keep your composure you can make an already vulnerable situation even more complex and hurt the rest of your team. My suggestion is to be like a duck – calm on the surface and paddling crazy underneath.

About my2twobits

I am a 40+ male PR executive from India. I have deliberately kept my identity hidden so that I can freely, frankly open my heart and share my feelings about people I know from work and outside. Hope you enjoy the resulting emotional free-flow in my posts. I do fear and dread the day when my identity is disclosed and I may be forced to totally delete this blog, unless of course a publisher comes with an interesting offer ;)
