PASSION, POISE, and POWER cont'd
One of the definitions of poise found in Webster's Collegiate Dictionary is, "easy self-possessed assurance of manner; gracious tact in coping or handling..."
So what does that look like in the workplace? Well...in my humble opinion, BALANCE!
Balance in the workplace is a condition of the individual's mind whereby he/she has declared order, tact, decorum, and deportment as a self-mandatory state of presence. In other words, that person doesn't allow the work environment to dictate his/her conduct. But rather chooses to be proactive instead of reactive, seeks alternative positive ways to a reasonable resolve, examines what is of ultimate good for the whole, and understands the value of staying in the present by not focusing on the "would've, could've or should've" of the past, nor the "what if" of tomorrow.
Your challenge today is simply to establish yourself as one with poise! If you have to re-group or press your re-set button because of existing issues at work, now is a good time to do so! Reflect on the words I have shared with you today. Refuse to allow anything or anyone to take you in a direction that counters where you want to be.
Make sure you make this your BEST day ever!
