In a new American Management Association podcast, John Baldoni, author of 12 Steps to Power Presence: How to Exert Your Authority to Lead talks about how leaders need to step up even when the economy is down.
To John Baldoni, leadership doesn’t change just because of a bad economy. When leadership is about people, whether it be training the next generation of leaders or just stopping to chat with other employees, that stays the same even during a recession. It is a leader’s job to inspire confidence in their people so that they will be resilient during the hard times and remain in the company when things get better.
