Over the last year spent working with brilliant startup CEOs and executives, we at Mindmaven have been developing a powerful leadership tactic we’re calling Positive Alacrity; and we just unveiled this strategy for the first time on The Mission. Check it out here:
Simply put, Positive Alacrity is the skill of consistently delivering micro-experiences that have a profoundly uplifting impact on the people we interact with.
As simple as it sounds, I’ve seen people—myself included—achieve powerful (even life-changing) results with an incredibly small investment (just a few seconds each day). For example, some of the startup leaders I’ve worked with have reported …
- Improved reputation as a leader (often resulting in lower attrition rates),
- Lessened CEO loneliness due to a greater sense of connection to the company as a whole, and
- Direct influence over one’s company culture through the ability to lead by example.
In short, you could call Positive Alacrity the #1 shortcut to delivering happiness to others and—in turn—creating a long-lasting sense of fulfillment for yourself. And it all comes down to a single habit.
