According to this week’s guest, one of the most sought-after leadership coaches in the world, Lolly Daskal, being successful as a leader takes persistence and patience—and the investment of a lot of time and energy. It, also, takes the willingness to get up day after day, putting in long hours and hard work, navigating the roadblocks, as well as the detours as they come. But during the journey and in the end, it’s so worth it!

This week, Lolly and #WorkTrends host Meghan M. Biro discussed what Lolly has identified as the essential elements every great leader needs to align with and practice every day.

Among her many accolades, Lolly was designated a Top-50 Leadership and Management Expert by Inc. magazine. Huffington Post honored her with the title of The Most Inspiring Woman in the World.

Here are a few key points that Lolly shared with the community:

  • Trust is the foundation of leadership
  • Make your leadership vision on purpose and make it meaningful
  • The best leaders inspire other leaders.
  • Being consistent with your leadership brand is important.
