Is it possible, in this full speed world, to be a successful leader and also stay calm? Or is all this discussion of peaceful rest and balance providing an excuse for people to slack off?
Calmness in not simply appearing to deal well with stress. Calmness stems from the work we do to preserve the connection to our essential core, our spiritual center, as we go about leading. This instills in us a deeply centered calmness that energizes people and shows them a balanced way to grow. It also improves our decision making and relationships, and enables our teams to create in safety.
Ask your colleagues for clues to your calmness: Can I do more to make this a comfortable place for you to grow?
Staying calm means choosing not to let fearful thinking take over: The peace I need to rest and grow is in my spiritual center right now. I choose to let my place of calm conquer all my stress and anxiety and be a beacon of hope for others to follow.
