Becoming A Positive Leader In Life And Business

It’s no secret that there’s an overwhelming feeling of negativity in just about everything right now. But that doesn’t mean we should choose to join in.

This week, host Mary McCarthy and co-host Sharon DeLay are talking about the benefits of positive leadership, and the steps we can take to become positive leaders in life and business.

“I think some people when they go to start their own business, they take that as an opportunity to be the task master. I’m in control. It’s my business. We’re going to do it my way or the highway.” ~ Sharon DeLay

It comes down to making a choice.

“We have to remember, if you are a positive leader, you are a leader in not just your business, but also in your personal life. You are a leader with your employees, with your clients, with your vendors. We are leading how people respond, react, relate to us. And those are all choices. So we can be positive and bring people in and make them want to be a part of our circle. We really can. And that’s a choice that we can make.” ~ Mary McCarthy
