(lead with confidence and not panic)
Stress and pressure can make or break a good leader. How one deals with it will result in how well any team performs. Enterprises TV shares how to manage when the pressure is high.
Stay focused. Be reasonable. When deadlines loom and clients are demanding, remember that it takes a team to accomplish goals. If the pressure becomes too heavy, take a breather and walk away from people. No one will do their job well if the team leader or CEO is barking orders or needlessly hollering. Staff members tend to feed off of their leaders actions. Remain calm and focused.
Remove obstacles and distractions from employees. These can create lapses in work time. Remind them of what needs to be accomplished and also remind them that they can do it if their mind is on the task. When it’s time to hunker down and hammer out the project, they will do it.
The Enterprises TV show realizes that there are times in the office when a little brevity is needed. Be sure to let your staff know this is okay. And then focus on finishing the job to the best of their abilities. Team leaders and business owners can manage the workload and the team when the pressure is high by reminding staff that everyone is in it together.
