Emotionally Fit Leaders
Integrity. Resiliency. Humanity. At Work.
Many business leaders don’t know how to work with their emotions productively, resulting in harm to others and themselves.
When leaders become emotionally fit, they lead with integrity, stay grounded in chaotic environments, and turn toxic workplaces into thriving ones.
That’s humanity at work.
How emotionally fit are you?
How many of these situations have you Experienced?
- An executive who belittles and berates employees
- A star employee (e.g., technical guru, financial whiz) who no one wants to be around because he is temperamental
- A direct report who shuts down emotionally in a performance review and just wants to know what to do to improve
- A manipulative, fear-based colleague who decides it’s better to go it alone, rather than collaborate with others
- An anxious micro-manager who believes that if you want to get it done right, you have to do it yourself
The good news is that, like physical fitness, you can improve your emotional fitness, through a structured and intentional practice.
