When the stakes are high, does performance anxiety cause you to fall back on old habits?

Are you too focused on the present, risking your relevance in the future of your organization?

The larger and more diverse an organization becomes, the more challenging it is to engage effectively with everyone. However, this shouldn’t diminish the expectations placed upon you. You must work hard to maintain your goals.

In an article by HBR, we found the “Departure” and “Voyage” stages of the leadership journey particularly interesting.

  1. The β€œDeparture” stage involves recognizing the need for change and leaving behind familiar ways of working.
  2. The β€œVoyage” stage of the journey emphasizes the importance of immersing oneself in unfamiliar situations and acknowledging the need to learn new skills for self-improvement.

Pay attention to any signs that point to your colleagues growing tired of providing feedback because their feedback seems to yield no results. The ability to adjust your perspective and behavior is essential.

So, how do you begin this journey? Most high-performing executives today understand the significance of people skills but fail to implement new habits and skills, especially when under pressure. 

Here are some tips to kickstart your journey:

πŸ”·   Know what you’re up against: People often overestimate their own competence, and tend to believe they’re better coaches than they really are.

πŸ”·    Map out your learning agenda: For instance, you may excel at navigating complex multi-stakeholder situations but face 

challenges within your own team or with peers.

πŸ”·    Make room for learning: Set aside regular time for reflection to accelerate your progress, celebrate small wins, and learn from setbacks.

πŸ”·    Spend time “down on the dance floor” and “up in the balcony.”: Get involved in the details, but also view the big picture.

πŸ”·   Seek support: Turn to coaches, mentors, colleagues, and even family and friends who can offer in-the-moment feedback and hold you accountable.

πŸ‘‰ Remember, success requires a broad repertoire of people skills that make it possible for you to lead others indirectly on a large scale. For many this will involve a transformational journey that may be longer and more challenging than they imaginedβ€”but ultimately, it will be immensely rewarding.
