Have you ever felt frustrated with your team’s attitude, performance or energy? What do you do when you notice the tone at the office is a little stagnant, or when your team seems less than thrilled to be at work? You might be surprised to learn that their low energy or passivity might be a result of YOUR low energy. Here are my tips for inspiring leadership!
The first thing you need to remember is that managers care about profit and systemization; leaders care about people. So I’m here to remind you that you have the great PRIVILEGE of setting the tone of the ENERGY, RESILIENCE and POSITIVITY for your team as their leader. So if you’re feeling frustrated, chances are that frustration is actually a result of your leadership.
What you need to be an inspiring leader:
- You need to eat and drink nutritiously, and get a good sleep every night.
- You need to get yourself the mental and emotional supports you need to be/feel:
- Emotionally Intelligent
Then you need to take those skills and help others (your team) to feel that way too.
If the energy on your team has been lacking lately take a look in the mirror. We as leaders are managing the atmosphere of the workplace. Role model your culture statements, get your own coaching, counselling or mentorship, join a networking community, take CARE of yourself, and go into that workspace every day with the best energy possible.
And don’t be that horrible leader that gets bitter, OK? You wanted this role, you asked for it, you accomplished it, and now this is the job. You can do this! You wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t already an amazing leader. Sometimes we just need to be reminded of our potential to do amazing things.
With love, gratitude and admiration for YOUR leadership,
