It is one of the most hectic times at office. Wins are being celebrated with heavy paychecks and losses are being overtly allotted.
Being a leader of a team I was in a harried state. I decided to step out in fresh air for sometime. I was thinking about the best possible way to encourage my lower yielding teammates without bullying or embarrassing them.
Spring was pushing the lazy, frigid trees resulting in a citrus bloom. The lemony fragrance hung in the air that touched my face as I walked out of the office. It stroked the leaves and branches gently at the time. I got a great insight by just being one with the environment.
The good stress or eustress is needed for everyone to perform to their optimum level. A leader must know when to wear a velvet glove on the iron fist to push the team’s performance.
We learn a lot from nature. I realized it’s best to stand with the wins as well as the losses. We must embrace temperance when we are dealing with folks.
With Easter’s spirit of new beginnings and a freshly illumined mind I realized whenever we are stuck up we must turn to mother nature as she will always come up with a solution and brighten up the dull pathways.
