Ask the Expert: The Case for Optimism - what are you optimistic about?
How many business leaders do you know who aren't optimists?
Indeed, IACCM surveys have suggested that our members often attribute failed projects to the over-optimism of top management. As a result, many see the role of contract and commercial managers as bringing balance, a dose of reality, and facing up to the real risks. For the executive optimists, this may be viewed as pessimism and negativity, and lead to limited or late involvement. Optimism, however, is a good trait. Research shows it is associated with better health, a longer life, and greater success.
In this webinar, Victor will address how can we best temper our need to be commercially realistic with a healthy dose of optimism. He will discuss what sort of attitude that gains attention and increases our value? Learn how you can apply optimism within your business role and life in general, in acknowledging the mantra 'All good leadership is optimistic'. Over the New Year Victor has been sharing optimism through The Centre' for Optimism's Shop of Optimism.
