Manage energy not just time and money

Get to the next level of performance by encountering a fourth dimension in your management style – Manage energy not time!

What is good leadership? How to be a good leader?

Unfortunately, it is quite normal to become a manager without any further introduction to the management craft. So, for many new leaders, becoming a leader is a huge challenge. Management is also not something you can learn just by reading. And leadership skills are not something you are born with. It’s something you must learn and constantly practice.

An introduction and some good advice can sometimes be a great help. So, here’s a suggestion on what good leadership is from us.

Digital leadership – focus vs. team spirit

Dilemma: A leader in a global virtual team appreciates chatting with her team about everything and nothing – privately and professionally. Everything is communicated in a big jumble. She does it to make them feel like a team across the distance. Her employees feel compelled to participate, even though it is difficult for them to do any concrete work in the meantime. Because in the middle of a story about her new house, an important message comes in relation to their work. So, if they are not part of the chat, they will not get crucial professional information.

Just like other global tech organizations, there’s plenty to do for the employees. They actually have a hard time keeping up. This challenges the fact that when they have to chat, they can’t focus and concentrate on work tasks.

Personal energy in your hybrid or remote work life

Whether you work physically, virtually or hybrid, personal energy determines how well you thrive, perform, collaborate, lead and how efficient you are. In my coaching practice, I find that some people are better at keeping a responsible personal energy level than others. It is often quite unsaid, but there is almost an expectation that if you are to be found in a higher management level, you have to master how to keep a high personal energy level (we can discuss the fairness, but it is the reality many face). Hence, in this article you get a brief introduction to what it means to work with your personal energy in your work life and why it is extra important when working virtually or hybrid.

12 things you shouldn’t do when you suffer from stress

t’s always a big step to recognize that you’re seriously stressed. Stress itself is a survival instinct that has been overactive for too long. So, it’s in the nature of stress that you just want to try overcoming instead of “giving in”. That is why it’s very hard to give yourself the peace of mind you actually need to feel good again.

Anger at work?? Learn about conflict management

Anger is a natural reaction that we as humans have to be able to defend ourselves in a deadly situation. The problem is that humans often react with the same fear and anger to organizational changes, redistribution of tasks, and the like as if we were attacked by a bear. Whether we acknowledge it or not, the feeling is there. It doesn’t help to just shut it off. Because it still guides your actions, thoughts, and personal strength. Learn more here.

Don’t go all in on changing habits instead; increase your awareness

Many believe that if they just set in on creating better habits, then their behavior will change and make the situation much better. That is simply not true. In modern work life, irregularity and unexpected changes are constant. Often the effect is you spending a lot of energy climbing a new habit, and at the same time slapping yourself because of your lack of persistence – the result doesn’t show.
