Remember That Leaders Are Always “On Stage”

Book Description

This Element is an excerpt from The Truth About Being a Leader (9780131873384) by Karen Otazo. Available in print and digital formats.

How to perform your leader “role” all day long, in front of all your audiences.

Actors turn on like a light as they become their characters or assume their public personae. Their high energy captures the audience. Good leaders do the same thing. However, when you’re a leader, your audience is an all-day one–every follower, contact, and client, right down to your company driver. You can’t slip out of your leader role until you’re alone.
