A man in the supermarket was pushing a cart which contained, among other things, a screaming baby. As the man proceeded along the aisles, he kept repeating softly, “Keep calm, George. Don’t get excited, George. Don’t get excited, George. Don’t yell, George.”

A lady watching with admiration said to the man, “You are certainly to be commended for your patience in trying to quiet little George.”

“Lady,” he declared, “I’m George.”

As a leader, I’m sure you’ve had your moments when you felt like the man in the supermarket pushing the cart.

In my upcoming e-book – “Keep Calm and Lead On“, I look at some behaviours and techniques used by great leaders who keep their calm and carry on. Leaders like Abraham Lincoln, Ekkapol Chantawong – the Thai teacher who kept the kids trapped in a cave motivated for days, and leaders like Jacinda Ardern, who kept calm and lead on even during the most horrendous terrorist attacks.
