No one likes leading during difficult times. No one seeks out rough waters to practice their leadership. For some, rough waters always seem to find them.
The true test of leadership occurs in these moments. They define who we are as a leader and the type of leader we become. What will help us navigate these waters?
Remember who we are at the core. Nothing should change our core values.
Trust in wise counsel. Others have sailed rough waters before us. Seek their counsel.
Be slow, diligent, and deliberate. Defeat comes when we act before thinking and are slow to execute.
