Leadership is about Solutions, not Excuses!
Be solution focused and you will be unique among your classmates and in the corporate world. Too few people think about how to solve a problem. They’d rather just sit around and complain about it. And I’ll bet you know plenty of people who are really good at complaining, don’t you?
True leaders are willing to do things others aren’t.
One thing they’re willing to do is to not sit around whining about what went wrong and whose fault it is. A key to leadership is to always give to the team credit for any great feat they accomplished, and also take the hit when something they do goes less than great. Your standing up and taking the blow will earn you many loyalty points.
Take responsibility for your leadership. Learn from the experience and move on.
Let others see and hear you staying solution focused.
Discuss the problem only long enough to define it so that you can move onward and upward.
Anyone moving forward will make mistakes. The key question is how quickly do you recover?
