The social and working worlds of today have changed greatly over decades. Millennials are changing the way the work place is ran and more people are stepping out of their comfort zones to become effective leaders. But what exactly is a leader?
There are many ways to be an exceptional leader, and many ways to be a poor one, too. In my professional experience, however, one leadership mistake has stood out year after year as the easiest way to sabotage your team and counteract even the most sincere effort to lead with grace, confidence, and vision.

Effective leaders need to find ways not only to handle times of uncertainly but to thrive in the face of change.
