“As a leader, think about whether the dynamic you’re creating will help release positive or negative energy.” – Henry Cloud
Leaders create environments where energy is released.
That’s how you become a leader. You go about your work, your games, and your hobbies in such a way that energy is released.
Good energy inspires. When you’re releasing good energy, people want to be like you. They desire to join you in your activity. They are motivated to action. They will report that they are better off having known you.
Bad energy deflates. It inspires resentment. Rather than join in, people actively work against the goal or quietly quit in the effort.
Good energy creates heroes and role models. Leaders with good energy can only do it one way. Bad energy creates assholes and losers.
We all have a choice about the energy we bring.
