Leading with the brain in mind.

The Power of Hope

Passion and positivity are key attributes of extraordinary leaders when it comes to providing hope for others that a vision is possible. Passion comes from the heart and manifests itself as optimism, excitement, and determination. In my experience, when a leader is passionate and positive, they influence others by providing hope that a collective vision can be achieved. Without hope, it is difficult to influence anyone of anything. In terms building commitment for the vision, effective leaders garner support from those closest to them and build momentum incrementally—a ripple effect.
