Leadership has less to do with authority and more to do with a mindset. Where the victim sees a problem, a leader sees an opportunity.
So during this storm, rather than play victim and wish things were the way they used to be (those days are gone), elevate your leadership game and out-invent everyone around you.

And if you've read The Leader Who Had No Title, I talk about it a lot, the leader versus victim mentality.
You have a choice when you go to work every day, when you show up in business every day, you have a choice, you can be a victim, or you can be a leader. You can't be both. And what's the hallmark of a victim? Well, you give away your power. You say, "Well, I'm not the boss. I don't need to bring on my A-Game today."
Or, "I went through a divorce 10 years ago and I'm going to blame my ex spouse and give away my power, and be a bitter person versus an optimistic leader."
That's what victims do, they say, "Well, I'm resigned to average. Why should I take the time to read a book, to build a friendship, to transcend a fear? Why should I do that?"
That's how victims think, they use words like I hate and I can't, and that would never work. And they love to criticize because every victim was once a dreamer who got hurt, and now they sit back in their armchairs and they criticize other people because they're too frightened to get into the game. You can be a victim, not only in your work, but in your life, or you can be a leader. And as you know, you can lead without a title. I have seen janitors behave like leaders, I have seen taxi drivers bring on their A-Game, I've seen so called ordinary people running so-called ordinary jobs with a sparkle in their eye, and they work with love. They work with attention to detail, they work like their work is the most important work in the world.
