Season 4, Episode 25: How Do You Show Up When You’re Under Pressure?
You want to build a great team, but you face lots of pressure and stress to deliver on deadlines and to manage change. It is challenging and you notice that your people are burning out. What to do?
Especially in these moments, when we are under pressure, we need to be aware of how we show up for others. It's what matters greatly: It sets the tone for our teams, it creates the company culture, it affects important things like burnout, and whether people stay in their jobs or leave.
In today’s podcast, I discuss the importance of knowing how we show up.
Quotes from this Episode:
"The words of the tongue should have three gatekeepers: Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary?"
~ Arab proverb
"A smile or a panic will spread through a group of people far faster than any virus ever could. When you walk into the office or a negotiation, then, wash your bad mood away before you see us. Don't cough on us, don't sneeze on us, sure, but don't bring your grouchiness, your skepticism or your fear in here either. It might spread."
~ Seth Godin
