Leadership is not easy day to day, but it is in tough times that you will really be tested. Now you must set a personal example, inspiring your team while controlling your own anxieties and concerns. The difficult balance to strike is in sharing the reality of any problems with your team while remaining calm and optimistic so that your team feels a sense that you are in control.

  2. Emotional leadership: your ability to engage your team and inspire confidence in them.
  3. Political leadership
