When Is Being Too Composed Counterproductive?

Meditating continues to be a core practice for my well being & helps me stay calm & clear when the &^%$ hits the fan (like during the past several months recovering from a serious surgery.) Or, for almost all of us--during the entire last 12 months!

When I found out I had a "rather sizable mass" next to my brain & my neurologist "freaked out a little" when he saw the MRI (those are actual quotes) my practice in meditating & focusing my attention were instrumental in navigating all the scary steps before & after the surgery.

Except now, 4 months into healing with another complication, my dear friend Tina lovingly smacked me with, "You are TOO CALM! It's time to challenge your doctor & hold him accountable!"

While I've helped many leaders over the years recognize that they were too composed & they were working against themselves (in certain situations), it was time to take my own advice!

Being too calm & collected at work can:

- send a mixed messages to your team members

- unknowingly come across as if something isn't important or urgent

- unintentionally perpetuate a problem
