The decompression chamber

Just wrapped up a successful webinar with some great managers.  We talked about the importance of choosing how you show up in the office each day.  Tip: You set the tone with your entrance.

Showing up rushed, stressed, grumpy, or distracted leads to a team that feels the same way. I know you have a life and that things can get hectic before the day even begins.  Our  smart phones are helping either, we start reading our emails before our feet hit the floor. 

What to do?  Use your office lobby or your car as a decompression chamber. 

Take a moment to breathe, smile and decide what kind of day you want to have and then be THAT guy (girl)!
