Press the pause button. Introduce a ritual into your evenings. Find a quiet place to sit and think back over the interactions across your day.
When you engaged with others, did you listen more than you spoke?
How often did you speak directly to someone either face to face or overthe phone in preference to email?
What did you do to progress relationships with people today?
How was common ground discovered, different views shared, and a way forward agreed?
How did you demonstrate the value of people around you today?
Decide on one or two specific people in your work sphere who you will actively engage with tomorrow with the intent of demonstrating you value them. This may be by meeting a peer for a coffee and listening to their challenges or catching up with a staff member and checking in on their personal/family well-being or putting someone forward for an award or some professional development.
Take a moment to acknowledge yourself and the progress you are making.
Become a better leader.
