Leaders are committed to supporting those they work with to achieve goals. One obstacle that can get in the way is the stress of other people. If you work with people who get stressed, you know the negative impact it can have on productivity, working together, and conversations.

Other people are not in your control, AND it is in your control as a leader to try different strategies to invite your team and colleagues to shift from stressed thinking to more effective thinking.

In this episode, Leadership Coach Deb Elbaum explains two strategies you can try with others to help them return to strategic thinking, good decision-making, and seeing other points of view. If you want to add more strategies to your coaching toolkit to help those you live and work with more quickly regain their calm and clarity when stressed, press the play button now.
