Self Awareness: The Stuck Tube Train / Do you create heat or light?
One of the keys for Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness and our ability to notice how we are responding to situations rather than just reacting. What we focus on and what we pay attention to also affects how we respond.
Did you see the tube train stuck in the tunnel on the hottest day of the year so far – it took upto 3.5 hours for passengers to get out? What would you focus on the negatives, the heat or the positives you got out! Heat is often uncomfortable isn’t it? And light often welcoming. Do you direct your energy to creating heat or light? Leadership and management requires heat to be put on at times but without the vision, without the light at the end of the tunnel there are no followers and leaders need followers.
