Hi Team- 

How do you see yourself in these moments?

Do you feel strong, powerful, and ready?

Or, are you feeling weakened and a bit down?

I want you to rise.....

Rise up as a Champion Leader.....

And in times like these, well, there is no better time...

You are needed.

The natural human response during any crisis situation is to contract, shrink, over-evaluate, analyze, and become very "whats going to happen to me?" focused....

Not the Champion Leader though...

The Champion Leader looks at a crisis and rises....

As those around them become led by emotion, the Champion Leader finds a balance between solutions and acceptance.... 

They operate on a small sliver of that lives between finding the most appropriate solutions to solve acute problems, while at the same time understanding the macro condition. 

The Champion Leader can not solve the "crisis" as a whole (covid), but, the Champion Leader can solve the problems that surround their family, their company, their team, their finances, etc. 

The Champion Leader is looking for opportunities... while at the same time sending out a frequency of CALM to those around them.... letting those people know through their actions: We got this.

What makes the Champion Leader so special is that they believe with all their heart things will improve... 

They trust the unknown... and find solitude and strength within themselves....

That positive energy they exude is felt and absorbed by those around them....

Not rattled. 

They walk towards their current situations and begin to solve one at a time with full conviction....

You may be a Champion Leader already....

Or, you may have a burning desire to be....

It always begins with seeing yourself as that Champion Leader....

Like any vision... it begins in your mind...

SO, as you attack the day today, step into the Champion Leader version of yourself...

SEE yourself taking the appropriate actions needed to solve acute problems, while understanding you can not control the situation at large...

Let your people know you believe in them...

You care for them..

You will do whatever you can do to ensure their health, safety, and future.....

Be a strategist.... a playmaker... a do-er.

When a Champion Leader steps up, they show all around them what is possible even during trying times....

Be that Leader.

Champion Leadership starts with you!

Let's GO!

Your Coach, 

COACH DANA CAVALEA
