How is your attitude as a leader? Is your attitude sabotaging your ability to lead effectively? Some leaders have a hard time admitting that they could be the cause of their organization operating below its optimum level of efficiency. As leaders, it is critical that we recall that it’s the leaders who set the tone for the organization.
If a leader has a good positive attitude, it will permeate the organization and the overall attitude will be positive. If the leader’s attitude is negative, invariably, the overall attitude within the organization will be negatively affected and could significantly impede the organization’s productivity and growth. Baseball great Wade Boggs says, “A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.” If your organization could use a boost, here are some ways that you can set an example for those who follow you.
