When Is a Leader Like a Duck?

Rather than the beginning of a clumsy joke, there’s a leadership lesson to be learned from watching a duck on a pond. Always tranquil and calm when seen from above, underwater, the duck’s webbed feet are churning furiously to keep her body on course and to avoid hazards. Water just rolls off her feathers.  
Great leaders are like ducks: calm and professional on the surface, letting unwarranted criticism slide off their backs, and moving with speed and purpose to remain focused on their objectives. Calm breeds calm, and good leaders know how to project calm confidence at all times.
