Leadership Tip of the Month: Nix Knee-Jerk Responses
Do you ever have an out-of-proportion, emotional response to a problem at work? That feeling you get is an “amygdala hijack” -- a chemical reaction inside your brain that releases a shot of cortisol and adrenaline. The next time this happens, here's how you can regain control:
  1. Be aware: Recognizing the signs of an amygdala hijack is the first step in responding effectively.
  2. Look underneath: What's the underlying reason for your strong reaction? What negative outcomes concern you? What beliefs are at work about the situation, yourself and your employees?
  3. Control your response: Take a moment to collect your thoughts. Before you respond, consider what's really at stake -- including the effect your reaction will have on your team.
