Many teams operate within the stress paradigm, where mostly all the work is done under high stress. More priorities than time allows.
If you find yourself in one of these environments, here's how you can elevate your performance. Clarify before committing.
- Here's my understanding of what we need to achieve, correct?
- What does this replace on my current set of priorities?
- What is the rationale behind the timing?
Any good leader will respect you more for helping to shape the future with solid thinking... reducing your stress and elevating your reputation in spite of the fast paced circumstances around you.
