🙋‍♀️ 𝐈 𝐚𝐦 𝐨𝐛𝐬𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝐠𝐞𝐭 𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐮𝐥𝐭𝐬 𝐛𝐲 𝐩𝐮𝐭𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐝 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐜𝐞𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤. Here are 3 ways we make it happen:

𝟏. 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐱𝐭: 𝐁𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐡𝐮𝐦𝐚𝐧 𝐢𝐬 𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐝, 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐨𝐝.

At any given moment, the different hats we all wear can feel quite heavy. Anyone who’s watched their daughter get “ghosted,” cared for an aging parent, had a fight with their partner, or fielded “the phone call” from their doctor no one wants to get, knows:

𝘸𝘦 𝘤𝘢𝘳𝘳𝘺 𝘢 𝘓𝘖𝘛 𝘰𝘧 𝘣𝘢𝘨𝘨𝘢𝘨𝘦 𝘰𝘯 𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘸𝘢𝘺 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘰𝘧𝘧𝘪𝘤𝘦.

Understanding that our people aren’t just employees there to do a job – they are living, breathing humans with a WORLD of complexity hidden beneath the surface – sheds context on what it means to do our best at any given moment, which makes space to lead with compassion.

𝟐. 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧: 𝐁𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐱𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐝𝐚𝐲-𝐭𝐨-𝐝𝐚𝐲 𝐞𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐨𝐲𝐞𝐞 𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐥 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐡 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐰𝐞𝐥𝐥-𝐛𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐩𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐚𝐲 𝐭𝐨 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧.

That means helping people take radical responsibility for their efforts and actions, THROUGH the lens of empathy and reliability.

Taking the pressure off of being right all the time to instead focus on curiosity and ask better questions goes a long way in creating a dynamic environment that meets us where we are and allows us all to be transparent.

𝟑. 𝐂𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐚𝐠𝐞: 𝐒𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐚𝐠𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐝𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐬 𝐝𝐢𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐥𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲’𝐯𝐞 “𝐚𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐬” 𝐛𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐝𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐭’𝐬 𝐚𝐬 𝐬𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐚𝐬 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐝𝐢𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐮𝐥𝐭 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐟𝐢𝐧𝐝 𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲’𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐭.

Safe spaces allow everyone to be vulnerable, while also respecting healthy boundaries.

Courage is forged at the intersection of trust, confidence, and vulnerability.

🤝 When we lead with context, compassion, and courage, we create a safe space in which all people feel included, seen, and heard. When we feel included, seen, and heard, we EXCEL in our genius zones, amping up our effort and commitment to the place that meets us where we are.

This is how we get the best from our people: recognizing they are people first, and creating a culture that allows each of us to thrive.

👉 How have you experienced courage, compassion, and context in your own leadership dynamics?
