William Rowell's insight:

Leaders or top performers have well honed coping strategies that allow them to perform under stressful circumstances.  Travis Bradberry’s article addresses effective strategies, or ten of the best or most effective strategies...“Some of these strategies may seem obvious, but the real challenge lies in recognizing when you need to use them and having the wherewithal to actually do so in spite of your stress.”

Positive thoughts help make stress intermittent by focusing your brain’s attention onto something that is completely stress-free. You have to give your wandering brain a little help by consciously selecting something positive to think about.

The best leaders are supportive.

William Rowell's insight:

Great article on leadership and collaborative team building, “The most effective form of leadership is supportive. It is collaborative. It is never assigning a task, role or function to another that we ourselves would not be willing to perform. For all practical purposes, leading well is as simple as remembering to remain others-centered instead of self-centered.”

Military leadership advice from Lt Col Matthew T. Fritz of the US Air Force.

Via Matthew Fritz, Mike Klintworth
William Rowell's insight:

Matthew Fritz's curator insight, August 27, 11:27 AM

There is no secret-recipe for effective leadership that is guaranteed to work in all situations.  The secret sauce for success is found in managing and developing the facets of leadership that apply to your environment.  The key to employing these facets is to study those around you—examples, both good and bad—to understand the effects and the results of leadership action.
