Hope: Motivational Fuel
Teams can run up against some tough circumstances. It’s up to the leader to always find a way to keep hope in front of the team. Hopelessness is where people quit. A team that has hope will fight to the last breath. A team with no hope will pack it up and go home. A great leader has the ability to measure the amount of hope the team has at any given moment. If a situation is hopeless, then the team should quit. If a sliver of hope remains, the team should continue because if they learn to quit when hope is present, they will quit much sooner when the next tough season comes their way.
