Let’s get our brains bumpy today!
I’ve got a question for you. Are you a thermometer or a thermostat?
Thermometer: you react to the temperature around the room. When it’s hot, it reads hot. Think of this as a knee jerk reaction to a situation. Usually when tension is high, these people lose their cool and become irrational and act on impulse. In a leadership position, thermostats won’t inspire trust or commitment.
Thermostat: regulate the temperature/ monitors the environment of the room. These people have a pulse for the energy of the room. When things get too hot, they can cool us down and think calmly. When times are good they give us that needed kick in the bum to press towards our goal. These leaders build trust & confidence with educational, thought out responses.
Which type of person are you, are you both at times and which would you like to be more of?
Stay cool my friends,
