Six Things Great Bosses Constantly Remind Their Teams

Six Things Great Bosses Constantly Remind Their Teams | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Whether you’ve just started training your first hire or you’ve been managing scores of people for decades, you’re in the position of being a leader. And if there’s one aspect of leadership that holds true, regardless of staff size or industry, it’s that being one isn’t for the thin-skinned or the faint of heart.

So much of your job isn’t about hitting goals, but rather about being rooted in reality, constantly striving to bring perspective and empathy to whatever situations you encounter. Sometimes, finding the right words can be the biggest challenge of your day. But other times, you’re overthinking it, and it’s as simple as saying these six tiny sentences.

How Successful People Stay Calm

How Successful People Stay Calm | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

The ability to manage your emotions and remain calm under pressure has a direct link to your performance. TalentSmart has conducted research with more than a million people, and we’ve found that 90% of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions in times of stress in order to remain calm and in control.


The tricky thing about stress (and the anxiety that comes with it) is that it’s an absolutely necessary emotion. Our brains are wired such that it’s difficult to take action until we feel at least some level of this emotional state. In fact, performance peaks under the heightened activation that comes with moderate levels of stress. As long as the stress isn’t prolonged, it’s harmless.

This is simply not rocket science, but something that we have always known about, and perhaps forgotten down the road. Stress management has been the key to the success of everyone living in a society bordering on chaos. The successful mother, the mature director, the 'Mr Cool Dude' are all metaphors of successful people who manage their stress levels to remain calm even in the most challenging of situations. True, some might have an innate capability for remaining calm, but then others can train themselves too!

just imagine some professions like Armed Forces, Medicine, Airline Pilots, shipping, police where stress levels are very high, yet many of them remain so calm and composed.  Its comes through extensive training. I guess we all have the potential to control our stress levels and be happy. Good reading
