Think about the number of uncomfortable situations that arise in your world.
Upon promotion, now you’re the boss of your peers and friends.
Doing the right thing even if it isn’t good for short-term business.
Making decisions that you know won’t be popular.
Holding people accountable for mediocre performance.
Managing work-life balance to please your boss and your family.
To strengthen your leadership, I challenge you to identify the top 10 – uncomfortable situations you could be faced with over the next 6 – months, then work towards becoming comfortable with the situation.
There are many ways to address this, but try this 3-step development approach:
- Develop the discipline of scheduling time to think and prepare.
- Develop the habit of anticipation.
- Develop a portfolio of practice techniques.
You won’t be able to develop the mental toughness you need to address uncomfortable situations if you don’t take the time to think, anticipate situations and prepare.
By taking this approach, you will become a more proactive leader versus a reactive one, and will become more confident and comfortable in uncomfortable situations.
