Your Why is Source of your Resilience, in Leadership or Personal Life

your-why-source-resilienceHave you ever met someone who managed to overcome all adversities, privately or professionally, and bounce back even stronger? I feel deep appreciation for such people who prove that there is no more resilient material than human spirit. Maybe you are one of them? Or maybe, luckily, you haven’t had too much situations in your life to demonstrate your resilience, but you still have that quality in yourself.

Susan Mazza in her blog post published in September on RandomActsOfLeadership.com, says that the key to be resilient is to know not only your goals, but WHY achieving those goals matters to you. “It is your ‘why’ that will be the source of your choice to keep going no matter what.”, says Susan Mazza.

Leaders’ Role In Promoting Wellbeing In The Workplace

leaders-role-promoting-workplace-wellbeingAs a leader not only you have the power to influence your employees’ wellbeing, but it is also your obligation. Setting the positive mood of the workplace and sense of purpose and unity, preventing burnouts and bad communication, you increase productivity and yet influence everyone’s overall quality of life. Julie Gordon, leadership trainer, wrote an article for PeopleDevelopmentMagazin.com about the four ways leaders can influence wellbeing of the members of their teams. Jullie says these ways are:

  • Conveying the right mood
  • Communicating effectively
  • Being accessible
  • Keeping an eye out for the signs

She reminds leaders that “lending an ear to employees who have concerns, ideas or opinions to share means that issues can be dealt with at an early stage rather than dragging on and impacting on wellbeing.”

Four Fundamental Factors of Your Wellbeing

fundamental-factors-wellbeingDo you feel emotionally and physically drained? If you do not feel good in your own skin it will be very hard for you to lead people and think of their growth. Do you remember flight safety instruction to put your Oxygen mask first and then help your child? It is clear: you can’t support or help others, if you have trouble breathing.

Ruth C. White Ph.D. wrote an article for Psychology Today, about vital factors of our wellbeing. Those factors are as old as humanity, but in our day to day life we tend to forget how important they are. This is why I recommend you to think how much you care about your own well-being. Make these 4 suggestions from Dr Ruth’s article your priority in private and professional life.

Dr Ruth says she created the SNAP system – Sleep, Nutrition, Activity, Personal Relationships – while researching strategies to prevent episodes of bipolar disorder. However, even for mentally healthy people these are well known stress relievers and important factors of our physical and mental health.

  • Sleep: Getting good sleep fosters alertness during the day. This increases our productivity, mood and improves public safety and safety at work.
  • Nutrition: Vital for our health and also instrumental for our mood, nutrition is crucial part of taking good care of ourselves. It is important to eat regularly and minimize the use of mood-altering substances such as nicotine, caffeine and alcohol.
  • Activity: Whether its walking or running, swimming or rock climbing, tennis or hiking, a regular program of movement keeps the body and mind in shape to absorb shocks to the system in the form of the daily stressors of life
  • Personal relationships: A 2005 study found that negative social interactions with spouses, relatives and friends correspond with a higher incidence of anxiety and depression. Creating and connecting to a social support network through personal relationships is primal to the human experience.

Following Your Inner Compass

following-your-inner-compass

I recently came across anything article written by Rich Fernandez. He was writing about the value of following our inner compass, which I really resonated with,

“Being in your work does not require any extraordinary effort, nor does it necessitate finding your “dream job.” You simply need to be present and allow yourself to experience what is most alive for you, what decisions you make relative to it, and how you take action.” I really enjoyed reading that wonderful quote from Rich.

He suggested that in following error in the compass we should ask ourselves the following key questions and by placing attention on what it means to be fully “yourself, aligned, and present.”

  • How would I like each day to unfold?
  • What would I like to focus my energy and attention on?
  • What brings me joy?
  • What makes me feel balanced?
  • What state of mind would I like to be in while I work?
  • What other aspects of my life do I wish to be paying more attention to?
  • By the end of my life, what kind of person do I wish to be?
