Their Behavior Doesn't Say Something About You

"My manager has been abrupt & almost mean in his emails. I'm starting to second guess myself," said Blake (a highly competent VP in a Fortune 100 company.)

"When did it start? & How often does he do this?" I asked.

Blake realized that her boss began getting combative & micromanaging when the big re-org was being announced from the recent merger.

I helped her recognize that he's likely stressed himself and that his behavior wasn't saying something about her. ๐™ƒ๐™ž๐™จ ๐™—๐™š๐™๐™–๐™ซ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ง ๐™ฌ๐™–๐™จ ๐™จ๐™–๐™ฎ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™จ๐™ค๐™ข๐™š๐™ฉ๐™๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™–๐™—๐™ค๐™ช๐™ฉ ๐™๐™ž๐™ข.

Instead of questioning herself, she committed to asking him supportive questions:

- How are ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ doing in all of this?

- Where are you getting pressure from ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ manager?

Blake brought herself back into her Performance Zone--centered & confident while also extending support to her manager.

That's powerful partnering!
