UMBC Program Directors, Sunil Dasgupta and Annica Wayman, were recently selected by Leadership Montgomery to join the Connecting Our Region’s Execs (CORE) program. Great leadership begins with a calm, assertive approach to life, and there’s no doubt they understand this. To achieve this requires that a leader have great control over their stress levels. In today’s Industry Roundup, we take a look at ways optimists deal with stress.
