We’ve all seen the cute dog with the fire raging all around, proclaiming “this is fine” when things are anything but. We’ve often been that cute dog: stuck in situations that are a bit out of hand but that we have to power through anyway.
When things feel overwhelming, people tend to turn to their leaders. What’s a leader to do?
In this talk, we’ll discuss how we can lead well through hard situations while still keeping our sanity, integrity, and sense of self intact.
