Who’s Leading You When Stress and Pressure Comes a Calling
How the best leaders succeed even during difficult times
“Fake it till you make it” leadership is no longer an option in today’s fast-paced and often unpredictable work environment. When stressed and under pressure, many leaders tend to resort to styles that better reflect an overly sensitive child or the do it my way parent. In both cases their ability to lead diminishes and people often lose faith in them. The best leaders learn how to behave their way to success. They do so by knowing who they are and what they are good at. More, they understand that stress and pressures can limit their leadership effectiveness…so they learn to mitigate the behaviors that can destroy trust and derail high performance.
You can be certain that stress and workplace pressures are the new normal. The question is, how can you prepare to lead yourself under these conditions and so that others will want to follow? The answer is by learning and adhering to proven leadership behaviors that consistently yield the best results in good or bad times.
- Examine the two emotional egos that cause leaders to behave poorly
- Develop practical methods to lead yourself no matter the situation
- Identify how the stories you create in your mind determines your actions
- Master workplace pressures and become the trusted leader others choose to follow
In this program, I share my story of how behaving like an overly sensitive child or demanding critical parent caused me to constantly struggle. I relate the frustrations that limited my opportunities for success. I also discuss how a wise sage shared the mindset required to successfully lead myself in both good and bad times.
