Take a stand with today’s leadership development tip!
Leaders have to take unpopular stands once in awhile. But remember that staying true to your belief system and values will reveal your integrity and passion for your work. Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in. But keep in mind that you will have more impact if you choose your battles wisely. If you adopt an inflexible position on too many issues, you’ll be perceived as defensive and close-minded.
