Your Resilient Leader Profile
As a Harmony Creator, you thrive when you are part of a group that is working well together. You provide what people often need most—a listening ear, a desire to understand, and a willingness to meet people where they are. You are often a calming presence when discussions get heated in meetings.
But you may appreciate harmony so much that you neglect to advocate for your own needs or what you think is the best answer. This can be draining as you try to negotiate with your own feelings without properly addressing them.
Your Best Resilience Strategies
Treat your ideas and feelings with the same care you give to others. In the interest of getting along, you may sacrifice your own ideas and interests. But that may leave you disengaged from the discussion and your team may be missing out on some important ideas. And when it comes to your own interests, consider what you would do if it were one of your employees who had this interest. In that case, you might be more likely to go to bat than you would for yourself. So, imagine that it is one of your employees asking for that raise, flexibility, etc., to muster up a little more energy to advocate for yourself.
Know your shut-down buttons. You may shut down in the face of certain behaviors from others. Become aware of who those people are and how you respond. Consider what qualities they respond well to, be it directness, logic, or inspiring vision. Look for ways to adjust your response in the future, given that understanding.
Look for the helping perspective. As a natural helper, you want to see others do well and get their needs met. But sometimes what’s most helpful isn’t comfortable. If you find yourself shying away from something uncomfortable, consider what would be most genuinely helpful to someone. It may be that uncomfortable conversation will be most helpful to them in the long run.
