Sometimes a short narrative can reveal much more than abstract principle can. It’s been said before that characteristics are better caught than taught. With that in mind see if you can come up with the characteristics of a trusted and strong leader from this short intro passage.

Even though he’s lost sight of the horizon for longer than he wanted, he doubled down on his certainty that he would beat out this storm, bad as it is.

He bellowed out orders to the ship’s crew and they work tirelessly giving all the skill and energy they have to save the tossed ship. Even though the raging waters batters the ship consistently, the crew remains calm and hopeful. Why?

Because every time that they looked up at the captain, he had this assured cocked smile on his weathered-beaten face as he steered into the darkened night.”

From this piece, what characteristics makes the captain a great leader?

1) Have a deep and abiding reason for why you want to be successful in the endeavor.

2) Experience.

3) Deep and abiding belief that everything will be just as you say. Enough that it shows in your body language and speech.

I never thought that this process would have opened up the amount of deep conversations I’ve had with friends and colleagues because of what they’ve read in these posts. I appreciated every connection. Before I get into answering my final question in my process, I want to mention how inadequate what I’ve said and am […]

Mile 137: (Question 2) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I have meditated on part 1 of my performance psychology strategy of analyzing my internal world because of our current cultural climate for a few days now.
