CEOs can be compared to tea leaves; you never know their strength until they’re dunked in hot water.

Not only that, CEO’s leadership skills must drive revenues, company growth, employee development and impact their communities and industry eco-systems. 

Which is why I’d like to give you a front row seat while I share my personal hot tea story:  how gaining understanding of the nuances of fine Chinese tea ended up teaching me the skills I need to lead my enterprise, while driving personal growth, commitment to social impact, and understanding of the importance of micro-enterprise and agriculture.  Plus, of course, an outsized and lifelong love of perfectly-brewed tea.

How can leadership be a better job?  As a boss, all eyes are on us whether we like it or not.  Our key responsibility is to embody the soul of our company’s efforts; to display the values and commitment of our brand proposition.  That’s our job no matter what is going on in our head, our personal life, or with our feelings.  When we are distracted, reactions become visceral.  Acting on instinct is usually primal.  If you can’t identify the emotion, especially in a business setting, your expressions signal your customers, funders, board, and team.   What do they signal?  That’s the billion-dollar question.  What do your reactions convey to those you are leading?
