At some point or another, your team is going to face a challenge. Whether it’s a tough project or a key team member leaving, how you guide your team through these obstacles matters. And endurance is a key characteristic of those who get through challenges successfully and those who don’t.
Why is endurance important for overcoming workplace challenges?
Success is a marathon, not a sprint. It’s safe to say that many workplace challenges won’t be resolved overnight. It takes endurance to stick with a problem and work at it for an extended period of time in order to come up with a solution. Those without the proper endurance will give up and let the challenge get the best of them – it’s up to you to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Simply put, you need grit and stamina in order to tackle workplace challenges head-on. Folding under the pressure just isn’t an option.
How can you have more endurance when facing challenges?
As a leader, it’s up to you to lead the charge and guide everyone through the obstacles your company faces. But how can you develop that stamina that’s needed when a problem comes up, or when it seems like you’re dealing with one problem after another?
Here are some quick tips to have more endurance when guiding your team through tough times:
- Don’t run. Tackle the problem head on, rather than putting it off. It’s always better to address problems right away than let them stew.
- Break it down. Every problem can be broken down into smaller chunks, which makes it much easier to manage. Think about how you can break down the problem to tackle it one piece at a time.
- Know yourself. Know whether you’re someone who gets easily stressed. Know what triggers stress for you, and you can be better prepared to meet it head-on – or avoid it entirely.
As with most things, the more practice you have at enduring challenges in the workplace and leading your team through the tough times, the better you’ll get at it. So, remember that problems, while they can be stressful, are also learning moments.
