Panther was new to the realm of leading a business. He’d been in leadership positions before, but he was never the true leader of any group. Now that he had the title he knew that he needed to brush up on how he behaved. Instead of sticking his head in the sand and letting other people take care of issues he learned that he needed to keep his hand in the pot. Most importantly he learned that he needed to understand and heed his own emotions. When he was tired he forced himself to sleep. When he was angry with something he would take a walk and cool down. Learning about himself in turn helped him be a better leader.
