About this lesson
Anything worth having in business or life comes with challenge. How do you approach challenge? In this module, we address the challenges and strategies to overcome them.
Assess Where You Are
Anything worth having in business and life comes with challenges. You will learn how to overcome challenges and the strategies to overcome them. The first step is to assess where you are.
When to use
Whenever you are trying to overcome challenges you must first assess where you are. Be brutally honest with yourself and your team.
When you are accessing where you are you have to be as objective as possible. Take yourself out of the situation and look at the situation for what it is. There are three steps to accessing where you are:
- Look at where you are in that moment.
- Don’t make it worse than it is. It may seem like a good way to motivate your team by making it worse than it is, but you will cause unnecessary stress.
- Don’t make it better than it is. As a leader, we are optimistic and have dreams of where we want to be. Always be optimistic and hold on to your dream, but at the same time be brutally honest about the good and the bad in any given moment.
Accessing where you are is the foundation for overcoming challenges. Be real and be brutally honest with your team to successfully lay the foundation.
