My Coaching Journal
We define self-leadership as a leader’s ability to know who they are, identify what is most important to them in life, create a plan to develop their priorities, and consistently execute on their plan with excellence.
In a recent conversation with a client, she expressed to me that her greatest challenge was to communicate better with her team. As I probed why she felt this way, we discovered that her communication was not the main issue; rather, it was her inability to connect with her team on a deeper level.
With every passing year, technology is allowing us to be increasingly accessible. We can work from anywhere at any time of day and can communicate faster than ever. But technology has also blurred the line between “on” time and “off” time, with many leaders feeling the pressure to be available for colleagues and customers around the clock.
This week I had the opportunity to work with a client whose primary challenge was dealing with feelings of exhaustion and burnout. He shared with me that he could not remember the last time he broke away from work to focus on planning or reviewing business results.
