MBL Minute:  Leadership in Crisis And Mastering Fear


Episode Notes


The only institution that takes leadership training seriously is the military.  Once you are able to accept worst case without shutting down all other outcomes are workable.  Learning to stay focused during worst case conditions is the type of emotional labor training received by navy seals.  In conflict situations, when our walls go up and we lose focus people die.  In business and in life, when we raise our walls and lose focus relationships die.


Fear is like gravity, it is everywhere all the time.  The development of our authentic, emotionally intelligent leadership comes from mastering the ability to move through our fears rather than being controlled by them.  This process requires persistent action and emotional labor.
