Hi, this is David DeFord.

In my first leadership role many years ago, my stress level went through the roof. I had no idea how hard it could be to deal with negativity, lack of cooperation, personal problems, counseling, and disciplining. Wow!

After one major misstep, my boss, Roger, pulled me in and said that I may not be leadership material because I obviously couldn’t handle the stress. He told me I needed to learn away my stress.

He explained that stress grows when we feel trapped and when we find ourselves in situations we don’t know how to handle. Learn how to handle them and the stress level reduces. He then gave me three book titles he thought I should read.

Roger also said that I would learn many valuable leadership methods from him and from every leader I followed throughout my career. But he went on to say that if I limited my understanding of leadership to what I observed from my leaders, I would greatly limit my possibilities. He said to learn from the world’s best.

What a difference his advice made for me!

I’ve read hundreds of books, attended classes, seminars, and conferences. I’ve participated in many mastermind groups. Each of these activities contributed so much to my leadership effectiveness.

But above all, they helped me learn away my stress.

Thank you, Roger.
