How It Works
1. Ask yourself what actions or behaviors of your team members make you angry or frustrated? What are the things they do that really push your buttons? Ex. showing up late for a meeting or dropping the ball on a deadline.
2. Consider the physical reactions you have when these triggers occur. Do you squirm in your seat? Sigh loudly? Roll your eyes? Change the tone in your voice?
Consider the 'why' behind these physical reactions.
3. Next, consider how those physical reactions influence your team. What do they signal about how your team's behavior might need to change? Is there a better way you could communicate verbally or nonverbally with your team to encourage new behaviors?
4. Finally, consider what you do to cope after a long day of a lot of triggers. Do you exercise, go for a drink, or vent to your friends? Are there ways you can cope that might be more productive for you?
