15 Mar Are You Saving Face?
Collectivist cultures prioritize honoring community to “save face” at all costs. Individualistic societies, like most American’s, prioritize initiative and personal achievement as pillars of leadership success. The ability to meet every aspect of life with the same serene face is a challenge for many. Instead, we trip ourselves up by thinking we have to be different situational personas..one for business, one for relationships, one for our hobbies and another for health and wellness goals. This can be so exhausting! So, how do you save face?
When I coach leaders on communication and impact skills, we always work from a place of authenticity. Being a calm, centered leader in a fast changing world gives comfort to our teams, builds resilience and preserves our sense of self awareness. Tall order perhaps, but research shows the most effective leaders hone these skills daily. If you’re local, join us to assess your sociability and global citizenry skills. I’ll be presenting on “Being Social” at Teak Rooftop, Red Bank Tuesday April 4 6-9pm to benefit Habitat for Humanity. On Wednesday April 12 8am at Colts Neck Municipal Center, we’ll be talking about your International IQ as a global citizen with the Colts Neck Business Association.
