Speaking of Leadership
Motivational speaking and coaching go hand-in-hand for Pat Sullivan. In his speaking engagements at Chicago-area businesses, Pat talks about the characteristics of a successful leader and how “attitude” shapes a leader’s effectiveness. In this fun and insightful guide, Pat Sullivan provides the simple, practical concepts and attitude adjustments that lead to true leadership success and that will allow business leaders and their teams to meet their goals.
For Sullivan, leadership success begins with attitude. Or, in this case, ATTITUDE: An acronym providing easy-to-remember keys to success and daily behavioral adjustments; essentially, personal characteristics that exemplify a good attitude that anyone can develop and improve upon. The A, of course, stands for ‘attitude,’ the overall positivity or negativity with which an individual approaches his or her daily life, and the respect he or she has for other people.
The rest of the acronym—teamwork, toughness, intelligence, thank you, you, determination, and effort, details the rest of the personal characteristics of the “whole package” of a leader. Ultimately, Sullivan argues that being a leader is not about the words you speak but the way you conduct yourself.
