How To Keep Your Cool

Maintaining Your Composure In The Workplace

When you are invested in the work you do, it can be very easy to let a snafu throw you off balance. Fortunately, you are the master of your emotions and you can keep your cool even in the worst workplace situations. Leaders who see the most success are able to maintain their composure no matter what the workday brings; to emulate them, use these tips.

  • Be Selfless: Believe it or not, not everything is about you. Remind yourself that the issue at hand is professional, not personal, and you as an individual have very little to do with it except for the solutions you can offer. Do not let yourself get wrapped up in worrying about how an incident reflects on you personally because, to be frank, it does not.
  • Be Decisive: Nothing can be harder on your emotions—and the emotions of your employees or colleagues—than feeling pulled in a variety of directions. Gather the facts, give them careful thought, make your decision, and then stick with it. Do not let emotions or fear force you to second guess the call you made. It has been decided and you can move forward from here.
  • Be Accountable: As a leader, it is important for you to assume responsibility for the issue at hand even if you are not directly to blame for it. Do not waste time and emotional energy trying to place the blame on someone else or find a scapegoat; take it upon yourself to focus on finding a solution.

Preventing yourself from pouring emotional energy into workplace issues frees you up to put that power towards something more constructive.
