New Leaders: Got Power Stress?

3 Steps to LEVERAGE Power Stress for Leaders at All Levelsleverage stress

Did you know that 47% of newly hired or recently promoted Senior Executives get fired or quit within the first 18 months on the job? But I”m not a Senior Executive or “Leader” … you say.  Why would you let that stop you from learning from their mistakes?

Why? One reason is poor performance, another is burn up and burn out caused by the stress from the inability to get onboard with the “human side” of the success equation fast enough:  Connecting and building trust  with your new team!

Not just any stress is the culprit … Power Stress*, a unique type of stress experienced by those who are responsible for the well being of others – your team, your employees and possibly even your clients.

Unrecognized and unresolved stress Power Stress will paralyze your ability to think quickly and use your intuition to make the right decisions? Because stress is contagious, your team suffers, too … especially when you need then the most!

If you are a newly hired or recently promoted leader building trust with your new team is essential for success in your new role.

Beware … awareness is overrated!

If you don’t have an executable accountability plan for WHAT, WHEN & HOW TO you could find that the fall down the corporate ladder is much swifter than the climb up …

What if you had a 3 Step Approach to Leverage Power Stress so you can reduce, manage and yes, even leverage the inevitable people challenges that come with your new position …

If you don’t yet have an executable plan for making lasting change – make one.  To qualify for a complimentary, no obligation Leadership Strategy Session click here.

Yet, it seems to be happening more often than ever before:  Leaders who are responsible for making decisions and who have such influence over so many lives making shockingly poor decisions for their own personal gain or satisfaction.

Which leads me to ask a different question …

Retiring leader or executive? Here’s your transition plan for re-entering family life …
