Last week we took a look at self-awareness and today we start exploring self-regulation.
Why do you think self-regulation is so important for leaders?
People who are in control of their feelings have the ability to create an environment of trust and fairness. In essence, self-regulation is the ability to control or redirect disruptive impulses or moods. It’s the propensity to suspend judgment and to think before acting.
The benefits organizations see when they have employees with high self-regulation:
· Politics and infighting reduced
· Productivity is higher
· Talent flocks to a company and doesn’t want to leave
Furthermore, high self-regulation enhances integrity, which is not only a personal virtue but then becomes an organizational strength.
Individuals high in self-regulation exihibt:
· Propensity for reflection and thoughtfulness
· Comfort with ambiguity and change
· An ability to say no to impulsive urges
On a scale 1 to 10, 1 being low and 10 being the highest: How do you rate on self-regulation?
No matter where you ranked, what are some ideas can you START doing today to improve your self-regulation?
