Who knew we’d need to talk about that, right?! I love this idea from an expert in anxiety management, Jaqueline Sperling. She says, “Our psychological immune system is like a cellphone battery…. we drain it quickly in a crisis because we use it more
So, it’s essential to continue to recharge it.” That makes perfect sense to me.
To show executive presence under pressure, realize that gratitude makes you resilient. Remember the worst times you’ve been through; be grateful for what you learned in that process. Tell people about how you got through those tough times and ask them how they did so as well. Tough times – everyone’s lived through them! May as well use them as a teachable moment of executive presence!
