Tenzin Gyatso is better known these days as the 14th Dalai Lama, a great spiritual leader who travels the world advocating for the Tibetan people and teaching about compassion as the source of happiness in life. But it was not always thus—Gyatso was once a bored student who found it hard to get motivated. “Only in the face of a difficult challenge or an urgent deadline would I study and work without laziness,” he recalls. He has learned his lesson since: “You must not procrastinate,” he now teaches. “Rather you should make preparations so that even if you die tonight, you would have no regrets.
In this post I am focusing on three simple stress reduction take aways that you can implement immediately. Making technology work for, not against us.
Most of us have worked in organisations where the culture is dynamic, everyone pulling together, its infectious and fun. Challenges are thrown down and the team rises to meet and overachieve them. Clients are happy, we are happy as Leaders and our People are happy. It is a place where you wake up wanting to go to work and contribute. Unfortunately a higher number of us have worked in organisations or teams where this is not the case. The culture is unhealthy, there is a lack of trust across the board. It can be an extremely toxic place to be.
As a Leader we all have a responsibility to look after our people, clients and our own self. If we suffer from, and allow extreme emotional episodes to go unchecked then culture in the workplace will suffer. Emotions are contagious and these episodes will spread to others. This can and will have disastrous consequences at every level from productivity, client satisfaction, culture and turnover of vital staff.

So what is in it for you? Well I have started this blog so that people like you and I can share ideas and tools to raise the profile of the positive culture mentality. This will include ideas and posts on personal development, how to build successful teams and increase the awareness and positive culture wherever you are by focusing on employee engagement. A positive culture translates itself to increased staff retention, a stronger workplace environment and ultimately deeper client satisfaction.
