Caution! You Need to Shine Brighter!

As a leader, your shine and shadows are competing.  You are sending out confusing messages, and not getting the results you had envisioned.  You need to work on people skills, emotional intelligence, and executive polishing.  Spend time exploring possible blind spots and choices.  Seek to understand what fears and attitudes may be blocking your path.  Consider seeking a mentor or coach.

It’s time to regroup and refresh yourself.  Get your leadership luster back!

  1. Check your diet. Is it healthy?  Get at least 7 hours of sleep each night.  Increase your discipline for getting proper nutrition and rest, both essential for total health in body and mind.  Numerous research articles reveal a lack of sleep decreases performance and increases errors.  Type A executives can underestimate the value of food and rest. Drop the sugar and go to sleep early, then feel your energy build!
  2. Build a Personal Board of Directors composed of people who nourish you and support your goals. With all the electronic communication – email, texting, facebooking, twittering – we can feel more disconnected than ever before.  Good relationships are the main component present in people who report higher levels of happiness and life satisfaction.  Relationships feed the spirit and support  growth.
  3. Silence the static noise around you and go within. Develop a daily practice of quieting your mind.  Develop inner resources that help you deal with outer circumstances.  Take a walk, read a book, take a nap, practice meditation.  Do something that is NOT work related.   The time away from the hustle and bustle of work will make you even more effective when you return.
  4. Learn to say “No” and practice saying “No” to time-eater tasks you could delegate. Listen to your inner feelings.  Do you say yes when you really want to say no?  Go ahead!  It’s healthy to say no!
