When you are leading a team, you are the Chief Mood Officer too. Is your team’s mood is bad? It’s probably because of you. Is your team’s mood is great? It’s probably because of you. Don’t just think of the task. Think about how you want the team to feel—and set the tone.
To inspire others, you have to be inspired yourself first. Inspired by a dream. Inspired by a goal. Inspired by things you care about.
