Managers face enormous challenges in trying to understand how they can they better lead themselves, their teams or their business units. They need to be able to think clearly, make high-quality decisions, effectively manage daily stressors and emotions, bounce-back from setbacks, and perhaps most critically – they must constantly develop their in-the-moment behaviors to be able to work effectively within others inside and outside their organization.
Positive leadership focuses on developing the behaviors, attitudes and thinking skills necessary to allow managers to perform at their best in the everyday moments they face in the workplace -- because it is in these moments that leadership actually happens.
