Positive Thinking in a High Pressure Environment

Positive Thinking 2

As we Think so we lead

Positive thoughts create real value in our lives. When you expand your perspective on positive thinking, new skills and resources enter into your realm of possibilities and increase value to you and those you influence. 

We can learn from this discussion:

1. A Positive thinker is willing to pressure test their purpose in times of crisis

2. Positive thinkers are able to make things happen even in the “pressure cooker” times of high intensity and increased risk

3. Positive thinkers build the kind of trust that elevates the performance of those they influence

4. Positive thinkers demonstrate with words and actions that they have learned that the value of positive thinking is “not about them” but rather the value through positive thinking comes as value is added to others.


Live 2 Lead: a global leadership experience

The title of this series in the Art of Leadership is called “As We Think so We Lead.” If you haven’t before, let me encourage you to consider thinking as a self-contained, autonomous activity.  There is and will always be a need for thinkers. Look for me at https://www.healthyleadership.online to discuss ways to advance your own growth as a thinker. As a certified coach I would love to serve as a coach on your journey.

About the Podcast

The Art of Leadership
Experienced leader, Niña Ellison, focuses on those seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest skills a leader will ever learn.
The Art of Leadership with Niña Ellison focuses on the soft skills of leadership, their value and the power of their influence. As a leader, if you are interested in moving from success to significance then balancing both hard and soft skills is essential! These seemingly opposing skills complement rather than compete with each other. Hard skills are demonstrated through technical expertise that results in clearly measured goals being reached. They are vital to the success of any initiative or program. On the other hand, soft skills emphasize the transformation of people more than the transaction of tasks. They highlight behavioral changes and making a difference in people’s lives. This podcast is for leaders who are seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest soft skills a leader will ever learn. You can connect with Nina at https://www.healthyleadership.online
