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.

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.

Schhhh! Silence results in more effective meetings

Do you want to get rid of ineffective meetings?
There is always someone who talks more than others. Someone talks so much (and is so busy thinking about what they themselves should say) that they do not hear what others say. It does not result in much.

Now it’s not like I’m against talking. But I think it’s important that we give room for silence – even when we’re together and when we’re going to do something. As a leader you can use silence as an intelligent tool to facilitate meetings.
