Leadership Under Pressure
Tip of the Month by Ron Jasniowski
As a manager you spend a lot of time making sure things go
smoothly on a day-to-day basis. You even spend time preparing for
unusual scenarios so things proceed with some semblance of order
during extraordinary times . And then it happens ... the unexpected! Everyone is
taxed to the max and things aren’t going as planned.
Our character helps us respond accordingly during those times.
Some managers get quite upset that his/her plans aren't meeting
True leaders on the other hand are calm unshakable role-models in
the midst of a storm.
would you prefer to work for? One who loses their cool under
pressure or one who is under control and is able to provide wise
guidance? Naturally, the later.
Losing your temper because of intolerable problems is no excuse. For those of you
who are prone to lose it under pressure, try focusing on the character traits of discretion,
sensitivity and persuasion. I admit I also have room to
grow in these areas. But employees have a lot of respect for
leaders who consistently exhibit those traits!
Once the storm settles, don't just
forget about it. That is the time to plan how to handle a similar
situation next time and begin steps toward prevention.
