Learning to pause and reflect.
Whether we do a daily or weekly, schedule time to think into things deeper. We get caught in the busy, we don’t take time to pause. Practice pausing and reflecting. Set time on your calendar to think about how things are going. Ask yourself what went well today? What can I improve? Daily check-ins can be helpful for yourself, and for your team. Celebrate your wins and identify those triggers that created conflict.
Reflection can apply to us personally, as leaders, and with the team as a whole. We can choose to sweep conflict, anxiety, discomfort under the rug or choose to dig deep down. Look at the Why. When we reflect we can identify creative solutions, repair relationships (even if it’s with yourself).
