We're in a crazy, busy world with perceived impossible workloads. The temptation to act quickly without collaborating or thinking is increasing. How can you create collaboration through influencing 360 to counteract these predicable blind spots? Use this checklist to begin to discuss with your team and anyone else who will listen. Work must change for the sake of human and organizational health.
Discuss this week:
- In which areas of work do you feel you are exhibiting strong aspects of emotional discipline? Do you hit deadlines regardless of the pain you will feel or obstacles you are facing?
- In which areas of your work do you need a higher level of emotional discipline? Do you need to lean into meaningful conversations that can move you and the team forward rather than leaning away because it’s more comfortable and familiar?
- Where do team members need help in being more disciplined? Is it hard for them to get fired up in the morning and do the toughest tasks they need to get done, first? Who can help motivate them and keep them on track?
