Did you ever notice that a lot of very successful individuals seem very cool and collect? As if they just woke up draped in fame and fortune. Well, the truth is, they probably have a way of keeping things in perspective while remaining calm. Here are a few ways to chill out while still caring. Be calm and collective – I promise you will accomplish more in respects to leadership.
Don’t Get Squashed By Your Emotions
First and foremost, you must find a way to be calm no matter how intense a scenario is. If you let your emotions get in the way, then it is much harder for your peers and coworkers to feel positive around you. We have all been in situations where one person is a yeller and the other is on the cooler side. It’s weird right? Super awkward. Most of the time you see eye to eye and more clearly the person with a calm demeanor. It is the same in extremely tense situations. Keeping your emotions under control allow you to exude more power. Your leadership skills shine through too.
Respect Should Be 2-Ply
Respect others and they shall respect you! It’s a two-way street my friends. Acting like an arrogant monster does not earn you respect, it instills fear into your employees. Not much will get accomplished if everyone is in fear all of the time. Try being kind and treating others with respect. You will never be able to please EVERYONE, but most likely your kindness will bring you all kinds of respect, and success.
Instead of overreacting in frustrating situations, try taking care of the problem. Anger and fits take a lot of energy and once you get through the animosity, you are less likely to solve anything, let alone a problem. Go step by step to fix something, don’t waste your time and energy with all of the complaining. Always be the better person and treat everyone with respect, even if you are disappointed or upset. Once again, you will earn even more respect when others see you stay in control.
Another fast road to success and respect is keeping your word. If you commit to something, stick to it. Believe me, I know how busy a schedule can be, but staying organized and on top of all of your promises is just another win for you! Be dependable.
Take these tips and try to put them into action. The person who will benefit the most from all of this, is you. You will be a well-respected leader who gets it all done. Earn it and own it.
