If you're feeling anxious right now, you're not alone. How can you work with authority and strength when you feel anxious? How can you inspire and motivate others when your mind and heart are racing? Here's the good news: Understanding what makes you nervous is a leadership strength! If you know how to manage it, anxiety can motivate us to be more resourceful, productive, and creative. It can break down barriers and create new bonds. It can help us find solutions in the toughest times and work through challenges.
