Are You Present with Your Team?


Being present means giving your undivided attention to the conversations and interactions you have with your team members. It's about actively listening, showing genuine interest, and being fully engaged in the moment. Alex shares his own struggle with being present and how he has made it a priority to improve in this area. As a leader, ask yourself: Do you make an effort to be present with your team? Are you fully engaged in conversations, or do distractions often get in the way? Being present is essential for building strong relationships and fostering a sense of connection within your team.


Do You Accept Reality?


Accepting reality means facing the truth, even if it's uncomfortable or challenging. It's about acknowledging the current state of affairs without judgment or denial. As a leader, it's important to assess the reality of your organization objectively. Are you making decisions based on realistic data and expectations? Are you willing to confront any gaps or shortcomings? By accepting reality, you can make informed decisions and take the necessary steps to address any issues or areas for improvement.
