Leading Through Change and Crisis

John Baldoni's timely and much-needed new book, Grace Under Pressure describes what it takes to remain calm and in control in moments of urgency. When "fight or flight" seem like our only options, good leaders do neither. Instead, they stay put and lead with grace and compassion, knowing that their own futures and livelihoods are bound up with those they lead.

From the Book
How do leaders "keep it real" when the heat is on? They...
  • - Take care of their people, putting the needs of others first to ensure that the organization survives.
  • - Take care of themselves, staying composed and rested so that they can lead "sustainably."
  • - Prepare for the future, taking the difficult steps today that will pave the way for a better tomorrow.

    Grace under pressure means doing these three things while projecting calm, control and, above all, compassion.
