Be hopeful...or else!


Sounds a bit contrary doesn't it?  However that is absolutely correct.  Seeing positive and hopeful rays of hope when everyone else is seeing big black clouds of doom is true leadership.  It is not about painting a picture of denial... it is about painting of picture of opportunity/  It is about stating that


  1. There is an upside, and... 
  2. The odds - numbers - don't matter.


My Experience with Hopeful Leadership


Many months ago my father was told he had a serious form of bladder cancer.  At his age, and with a prior history of prostate cancer his doctor told him he his surgical options were very limited.  I remember sitting with him as he asked the doctor... "So what would you expect?"   The doctor clarified "Are you asking how long?".  "Yes, what's usual?" he said, calmly and clearly.  She said "13 months... But YOU are NOT a number."


I guess my father agreed.  He is now approaching two years and the cancer disappeared with no signs.  He continues to be diligent about his health and we just scratch our head, and enjoy the time.  At every step his doctor was honest with the facts and always pointed out the opportunities to survive.


My career has been working with people who believe change is not possible...options are limited... and control belongs to fate.. or others.  In every case we have been brought in by leaders who refused to accept the numbers and wanted allies to create survivors.  It has often been difficult, but most often sucessful - more than anyone ever thought possible.  The one thing I have learned, If you do not believe there is a way out... there won't be. If you do not point out the one door to success partially open... no one will take it.
