Wonder: My post about optimism on Leadfully

“I have a blog post in mind for Leadfully that I think you’d be perfect to write. It would be a first-person piece sharing a time that you needed to boost a team’s optimism or creativity.”

This was a message from my friend, Amanda, a few weeks ago. And she was right. I have a very good story to showcase this. I’m very excited to say that this story, a reflection on the dark days of the recession in 2008 when I had just joined a financial services company, is now live on the Leadfully site. Would love your feedback, comments, and questions. And please feel free to share far and wide to anyone whom you think would benefit from it.

Check out “Using Optimism to Face an Impossible Assignment”.
