As is often the case, it is easy to see the strengths of a proven leader when a team executes and delivers as expected on a given task or project.  However, regardless of the overall team strength or amount of time and energy spent planning, eventually trouble will strike. While unexpected obstacles can be disconcerting, it’s often hurdles like these that provide an opportunity for a true leader to shine. 

Last month I read an article written by leadership coach, consultant, and author Lolly Daskal on the topic of leadership and what successful leaders do when faced with adversity. Lolly has created a list of leadership principals that you may find helpful when things don’t go quite as planned.  Click Here for the full article in Inc. magazine and her list of “10 Things Successful Leaders Remember When Things Go Wrong.”
