Secret #41: Leading with Positive Beliefs


Excerpted from Zingerman’s Guide to Good Leading, Part 4:
A Lapsed Anarchist’s Approach to the Power of Beliefs in Business

Given that positive beliefs lead to positive outcomes and that negative beliefs do not, it became increasingly clear to Ari that leading from a positive perspective was the only way we were going to build the kind of long-lasting, much-loved organization we want to be a part of. What’s included here is an attempt to apply this principle in all walks of our leadership life. Just the act of working on it has helped us stay on the positive path and to get more rewarding results. We hope it does the same for you.
