Leaders create calm in times of chaos

September 26, 2017 #coffeetalk

Good morning to all of you out there. I have my tall Yeti mug filled with dark roast with a splash of sugar free pumpkin creamer (I know, I was staying clear of artificial creamers but a dudes gotta do what a dudes gotta do) and am ready to get after it today.

So, how many of you have seen the very popular image of Stay calm and carry on? We have seen the reiteration of this photo to sports, life and every aspect of what we do.

The key component that this image is staying calm. One of the key phrases that I used to hear while I was training to be a leader at work was “in times of chaos, a great leader creates calm … in times of calm, a great leader creates some chaos” but I am going to focus on creating calm in times of chaos.

Our lives can truly be chaotic and tumultuous and the key isn’t necessarily finding solutions or fixing the situation but rather creating calm in the situation to be able to navigate the chaos.

How many of us are fixers? How many of us are always trying to remedy situations and create solutions all the time rather than focusing on how we are responding and how we are traveling the journey to help set success up if the time is right?

This is an area that I need to work on more through listening, comforting and helping rather than bulling over the situation and always taking control.

Just my small reflections this morning because I know it is something I have to work on.

Have a great day.

  1. From this morning’s blog:

    “This is an area that I need to work on more through listening, comforting and helping rather than bulling over the situation and always taking control.”

    I have the same issue, as I think a lot of guys do.

    I can’t tell you how many times my women friends have told me, “Richard! I don’t want you to fix things! All I want is for you to listen to me!”

    For a lot of us older guys who were indoctrinated w/the idea that it’s our job to “fix” things, whatever those “things” are, really listening is very difficult.

    I hope that you younger men have done better.

    Have a great day, everybody!
