I Always Tried to Turn Every Disaster Into an Opportunity
Imagine yourself as a child waiting with several friends for a fruit snack after an afternoon of hard play.
Each friend receives their own special fruit: cherries, peaches, grapes, and apricots. You are happy to get fruit--until your bowl of lemons arrives.
Lemon disasters come with life. The same is true in the workplace.
Effective leaders understand that disasters are opportunities, however.
A budget reduction is an opportunity to eliminate work, renegotiate with vendors, or lobby for needed change in the organization. A layoff is an opportunity to complete one's education, change one's career, or simplify one's life.
It’s our perspective that leads us to lemonade.
