Mindful Leadership in Action – Tip of the Week – Apply Equanimity When You Feel a Need to Control

Posted on by admin

Life offers many opportunities to practice equanimity every day. For example, when colleagues or subordinates are not approaching a situation the way you would, you may find yourself getting impatient or annoyed. This is a great opportunity to allow yourself to experience that annoyance from a place of equanimity and to see if you can just let it go or if you need to intervene. In these situations, reflect on whether it’s your need for control that is causing the annoyance or would the situation, project, or client really best be served by a different approach. Leaders need to be able to judge how they can add the greatest value. By approaching any situation with equanimity, they are more likely to respond without hindrances and deal exclusively with the situation at hand.
