Leaders know stressful situations will come. The obvious concern involves how we deal with those situations and the consequences.
We also know how our character influences those decisions. Therefore, we must strive to maintain the kind of character that moves us toward right decisions.
Our oldest son once said, “As leaders, the ability to make the right decision during a stressful situation is made easier by having the right character because all the unethical choices are automatically removed.”
Think about it. When leaders possess and maintain the right character, choices are clearer because any choice that borders on an unethical intent is not an option.
