Executive Coach to President Obama

3. Lead with your incredibly even-handed personality: “It’s really true that I am even tempered. I do get angry, but it’s a controlled anger. I don’t blow up at people….”

Avoid overreacting to the success and failure that will inevitably happen—they’re both imposters. Leaders, especially presidents, always speak with “worldwide megaphones.” Whatever you say will be heard as coming from on high. As such, leaders in general and world leaders specifically don’t simply have opinions; rather, their opinions are heard by others as commandments. Speak softly and remain even handed.
