Staying Sane During “Insane” Times

Financial stress. Social isolation. Staying at home with family you love but with whom you prefer having
just dinner (not breakfast, lunch and dinner). A shortage of toilet paper. Oh, and COVID-19. Stress rates
are at an all-time high. Stress not only feels bad but can also be detrimental to every facet of your life.
Your immune system can get depleted so you cannot fight off infections as easily. Individual stress can
negatively impact your relationships. And a stressed brain results in decreased productivity, creativity
and overall engagement, which diminishes one’s ability to optimally work. That’s the bad news.
The good news is there are steps you can take to better manage your stress and its side effects
regardless of what is going on.

Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo provides these learning objectives:

  • Understand the mechanism of stress so you can control its impact even during turbulent times.
  • Apply proactive and reactive strategies to improve your emotional well-being.
  • Discover research-supported ways to enhance your sense of control and even contentment during
    the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Dr. Lombardo provides tools to cultivate optimal leaderships skills that can successfully be used immediately – and that conquer that inner critic.

The One Thing All Good Leaders Must Have (And Most Don’t)

Confidence is a word often used to describe strong leadership. But in working with clients for over 20 years, I have come to find there’s something even more important. When I coach executives, present keynotes and moderate workshops, I am struck over and over by the importance of something deeper: self-worth.

Self-worth refers to how you view your sense of worth or value as a person, and it impacts every interaction you have. Self-worth presents itself as conditional or unconditional.

Most people in our society tend to have conditional self-worth. Conditional self-worth means “I believe in myself IF…” As in: “I believe in myself:

IF I win this argument.”

IF people agree with me.”

IF people look up to me.”

IF I have a certain title.”

IF I look a certain way.”

Leaders with conditional self-worth may appear confident, but the quality of their sense of worth makes them rather poor leaders. For example, leaders with conditional self-worth operate from a win-lose position. So they believe, “if I win then you lose” and “if you win then I lose.” They are in constant competition not only with another business or brand but within their own team and company. They view other people’s successes as indicative of their own failures. They’re more likely to criticize the people who work with them and point out what they do wrong as opposed to highlight and support what they do right. They view differences of opinions as a threat to their ego. As such, they create an environment where creative ideas are not shared. And feedback from others is interpreted as an insult or threat, rather than a constructive way to improve. Not necessarily the kind of leader you want to have in your organization.

In contrast, people with unconditional self-worth believe in themselves based on their values and strengths. They’re very comfortable with who they are and, as a result, very comfortable with other people’s differences. Instead of having the need to be better than someone else, they accept other people for who they are. In fact, I do a lot of diversity training in organizations, and I can tell you that you cannot create an environment that is truly open to diversity unless you address conditional self-worth.

Leaders with unconditional self-worth and operate from a win- win position. They want to succeed and they want to see the people around them succeed. They operate on the notion that a rising tide lifts all ships. Leaders with unconditional self-worth highlight the positives in others, and they welcome feedback. They possess a mindset based in the spirit of continuous improvement, “I’m good and I can keep getting better.”

Confident leaders can have conditional self-worth, but they lack the mindset to be a truly good leader. The key is really to enhance and embrace unconditional self-worth. And the beauty is it’s a very teachable skill. As a coach and a speaker, I teach people how to cultivate their unconditional self-worth.
