In the best of times, unsolicited advice is slightly condescending, and most of us can take it (or leave it) gracefully. When stress is on the scene though, it can be rather damaging.
Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.
“I don’t have time to coach my staff – we are all too busy. They need answers and direction.” If you are a leader or manager, you may have been in that same situation or even have said those same words.
Most leaders and managers would say that having tough conversations is part of their job. And most would also say they avoid having these conversations.
The unfortunate truth is that, all too often, most people listen just long enough to figure out what they want to say next. And what they say usually starts with “I.”
Resilience is not something that we have or don’t have. It is behaviors, thoughts, and actions that are learned and developed.
