“Conflict builds character. Crisis defines it.” says Steven V. Thulon, the Band Superintendent of the United States Air Force Band of Mid-America. Leaders experience a range of complexity in the workplace, from skyrocketing victory to complete and utter defeat. Nothing in life will solidify your viability as a leader than your response in the face of challenge.
You’ve seen it before: the new leader full of passion and creativity, experiencing the thrill of spontaneous vision, bold ventures and an enthusiastic drive that has him working tirelessly to see his vision become reality. The new leader inspires us, motivates us and captivates our hearts! The flipside of the coin is the seasoned leader who often displays a cautious optimism. His humility has originated from many experiences that have proven: no matter how great a plan looks on paper, his execution, the world’s acceptance of his innovation or service, and his composure despite any number of complications are what substantiate true success.
Experience refines the best of leaders. Conflict and workplace challenges are instruments that can be great opportunities to shape leadership character.
