The Big Leadership Moments: When real leaders step up

Episode #204 // Adventurer and TV personality, Bear Grylls, (protagonist of the docuseries, Man Vs. Wild) said in an interview, “You have to come alive in the big moments... When it's NOT a big moment, you don't need to be front and centre, but when it's a big moment--BE THERE!


That’s pretty powerful. Over the years, I’ve found it to be a defining characteristic of the best leaders I’ve seen. That’s when all the talk stops, and you get to see what people are really made of. Because you won’t see their true character until the big moment arrives.


We see examples in every area of life where some people step up in the big moments, while most people fade into the background, hoping not to be noticed.


The good news is that, wherever you are today, this is something you can learn… and it will really differentiate you as a strong leader, in whatever context you operate in!
