Leadership Presence

Leadership

What is the most important lesson you have learned about being a good leader?

Developing Leadership Presence is the topic for Professor Lori Coakley’s class on Organizational Behavior next week at Bryant University.

For this class, I was asked to share some things I’ve learned about developing leadership presence. I became a manager long before I felt ready at the ripe old age of 22.

Taking a walk down memory lane has been a CRINGE-WORTHY rewind to 2002, remembering the many mistakes I made as a new leader.

My biggest discoveries from my 20s:

1. Learn who you are as a leader by forcing yourself to get outside of your comfort zone and do hard things—as often as possible.
2. It’s not about you. Being a leader is about helping others to become successful.
3. Be a role model—but don’t forget to be yourself.

You can hear more on these lessons (and some personal stories!) in the full talk here.

Scars are more than evidence of trauma. They're proof of resilience.

What doesn't kill you doesn't always make you stronger. Sometimes it reveals strength you didn't realize you had.

Pain is not just a teacher. It's a relic—a reminder of your ability to withstand adversity.
