A Great leader breathes conviction into his team. HOW you ask? By and through his own conviction. Are you the leader? How convicted are you? Can your people hear, see and feel your conviction, or do you have to tell them that you're convicted?
Like we say in the coaching world, "if you have to tell them you're the leader you're not, if you have to tell them you're the boss, you're not!" As the leader you have to exude a positive energy that convicts everyone else by your level of conviction. Your conviction is their connection.
