Connect, then Lead

In a recent Harvard Business Review article Amy J.C. Cuddy, Matthew Kohut, and John Neffinger explain warmth and strength in leadership. A good read as we look ahead to beginning another school year – a fresh new year with no mistakes in it!

The take-away for me out of this is without authenticity you can’t be an effective leader. Being trustworthy puts the power in powerful. Ever work with someone whose smile fades just a little too quickly or whose handshake is not quite genuine? Just keep it real.
