A common denominator I’ve noticed when working with large successful organizations is the exhibition of Positive Dynamic Leadership (PDL).

Companies who navigate the daily rapids of operational challenges with consistent excellent results tend to be commanded by leaders who are energetic, visionary, proactive, decisive, and create an infectious enthusiasm.

On the other hand, especially with regard to small or mid-scale operations that have achieved terrific results, luck seems to surface more often as a success determinant…the other PDL, Pure Dumb Luck!

Indeed, there may have been a degree of synchronicity or good fortune involved. However, the story I’m telling myself is…there was a vision and mission, strategy, planning, initiative, and execution that contributed to their “luck.”

Although none of us will refuse a little pure dumb luck, the positive dynamic leadership form of “PDL” is indispensable to sustained business success.
