Are you seeing this, too?
It's crazy how much more pressure, stress, and distraction there is now, and the effect it's having on people.
If you're seeing too much drama, complaining, negativity, and lack of focus in your team, this is why. The pressure has essentially put everyone into survival mode.
This is not their fault, by the way. It's exactly what our systems are designed to do (respond to pressure by going into survival mode). The problem is, survival mode is precisely where we don't want to be.
Success today requires people to be their best: creative, flexible, open, positive, cooperative, present and engaged. These are the traits companies are looking for.
They're also the first ones to go when you're in survival mode.
What this tells us is, we need new skills. We need to learn to take control of these inner processes, rather than be controlled by them.
Raise Your Inner Game, Don't Just Talk, Be Heard!, and QBQ! are all simple, practical programs designed to do exactly that. They teach people how to rise above the pressure and distractions (and help others do it, too!) so everyone can stay out of survival mode and be more focused, productive, and fully alive, every single day.
