3 am wide-awake and your mind won’t shut off. No sleep coming for the next few hours from worry about why a project is not going well. Why are you not executing on what your well-laid plans told you would happen. Who is to blame? You? Your Team? Both? Frustration everywhere…what to do? Damn, here comes the sun and off to work with the wrong energy and approach.
Every manager or leader worth their salt, including myself, has had these wake up calls or stress dreams. I want to give you some ideas and tools you can implement to help put these thoughts to rest and allow you to see a clear path back from poor execution onto the road for great execution and success.
