How do you lead through chaos?!?


Guess what folks, we’re doing it. You, me, your kids, the grocer, the mailman who waves with a big smile, the bus driver, my 90 year-old neighbor who hollars a hello from the porch. We are ALL leading through chaos.

This has happened before in our lifetime and career, and we lived through it. The Reagan years. The bust of the ’90’s. The Gulf Wars. 9-11. The Great Recession …. and now Coronavirus.

But how did we get through it? What was that spark, the intensity, the willpower that drove us to succeed?

These are the stories to inspire you; from women, men, all walks of life, a variety of business sectors with the tenacity and verve to overpower the toughest of times.

Leaders are born during the toughest of times. The world changes and we, leaders, approach the change with the mindset to win.

Yes, times are tough. Yes, the world will be different once we make it through this. Yes, we will change. No, this isn’t easy.

You’ll find a story here that will resonate with you, inspire you, make you smile when you’re having a down day, and may make you teary-eyed because you understand oh-so-well how tough it was for that storyteller.
