We live in a world that is filled with negativity. All it takes for us to realize this harsh reality is to look at the news or perhaps social media. Watch ten minutes of the news and count the number of times a negative thing is said about someone. Scroll through your social media feed so that your friends can inform you about everything that went wrong in their life that day. In a society that seemingly encourages negativity, a great leader understands how to respond with contagious positivity.
As you seek to empower and encourage the people under you by means of your leadership, positivity is key. Staying positive seems like such an easy task, but what do you do when you start to lose hope in your situation? How are you going to respond when your work-load seems like more than you can handle? A leader who is lacking positivity will find it significantly more difficult to combat these looming questions.
Some people are born with a natural sense of positivity, while others tend to lean more toward the alternative perspective. While this is true, every person can carry a positive perspective throughout their life. Learning how to do this will allow you to live a more fulfilling life and grow in your leadership.
Put yourself in the shoes of the people you are leading. When they are having a rough week, or when they are discouraged about their responsibilities or their performance, they need a leader who can encourage them. If you cannot stay positive in your leadership, you will find it difficult to encourage others.
In this video we will discuss ten key thoughts on how you can grow in your positivity. Applying these principles to your life and leadership will allow you to exude a radiant positivity that is contagious. Your positive perspective is vital to your leadership of others.
