The Cocktail of Overwhelm

As a leader, it's easy to get caught up in the day-to-day whirlwind of business. 

Mix pressing deadlines and tight budgets, garnish with Zoom fatigue and you've got a recipe for a cocktail of overwhelm. 

Along the way, it can be difficult to remember that your colleagues are human too, and the human side of the business relationship needs nurturing as well. 

A simple tool to try in your next one on one: take a moment to ask, "how's the space between us?"

If asked openly and honestly, with space for attentive listening in return, you'll open a doorway to a conversation to discuss how you're working with your colleagues and directs. 

The process of developing healthy working relationships that can withstand the cocktail of overwhelm requires intentionality. Asking "how's the space between us?" is a helpful start.
