How the lowest vibration in the room is costing you dollars and morale

We all know them, have worked with them, and at some point, have probably been them — “the lowest vibration in the room” guy/gal, or “energy vampire.”

This person can suck inspiration, hope, enthusiasm and, at its most basic, peace, right out of the room. And it’s expensive. Consider the cost of negative energy at your next meeting. Negative energy in the workplace costs us time, money, resources, hope, enthusiasm, creativity, morale, peace and connection. It is a huge contributor to — and byproduct of — low productivity in the workplace.

The Lowest Vibration in the Room: How Negative Energy Costs You Money and Morale

We all know them, have worked with them, and at some point have probably been them: the lowest vibrations in the room, otherwise known as “energy vampires.” These people can suck inspiration, hope, enthusiasm, and peace right out of the room.

Can Introverts Have an Energetic Presence

Can introverts have an energetic presence? originally appeared on Quora, Yes! Everyone has an energetic presence. It doesn’t matter if you are an introvert, extrovert, or ambivert – you have an energetic presence. The difference is simply in what your style is, what’s real for you, if you’re conscious of how you show up, and if you’re able to shift your presence in the moment to support yourself (and others) intentionally.

8 Easy Ways to Spread a Great Attitude

Self-care is an act of generosity, not only to ourselves but also to those we nurture. Our attitudes are contagious. The question we get to pose every day is, which one will I choose?

How to Make Time for Self-Care When Your Work Life Is Crazy

How can busy leaders make time for self-care? originally appeared on Quora:First, check-in with your relationship with self-care and what it means to you. And if it’s anything but awesome, nourishing, and something that you want to be in partnership with, redefine it. Often people have self-care as this big thing that is so daunting (and impossible) that they avoid it or feel bad about it. For example, train 5 days a week at the gym! Eat perfectly! Yoga daily! Meditate! Sleep 8 hours! Get massages! Big vacations! Etc. etc. (I get exhausted even writing this list!) BUT, self-care can be little and “in the cracks” moments that nourish our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Those things I listed are great – go for it as they resonate for you, and know that self-care is so much more.

Navigate Conflict with Those You Love and Lead by Working These Three Things

I had, what I call a “growth experience” with my daughter. (Some would call this an argument.) I’m learning the ever-changing dance of parenting a highly intelligent teenage girl (who I love more than air) who is also learning her own ever-changing dance of becoming as she learns how to navigate a mom who asks a lot (a lot) of questions. Despite the fact that I write books and help people show up and collaborate better for a living, it never pains me more than when one of my kids and I are in our own “missed collaboration.”

Addressing “Busy,” Burnout, Overwhelm, & Self-Care through Culture

Burnout and self-care is a highly personal journey, AND we can do things as leaders, organizations, and culture to make “busy” and burnout a thing of the past and self-care the “badge of honor”.

I’ve been speaking about “busy” and burnout — navigating it, healing it, and avoiding it — for years. In my work, I’ve found there are several components, that when addressed proactively (and reactively as required), can support us in managing ourselves through it and even avoiding it all together.

How We Create Our Own Burnout and What to Do About it.

“Am I truly burnt out, or do I just need a nap?”

I love the conversations I get to have with people about where they’re at in their leadership journey. This comment came from a group I’d worked with last year.

Creating Maximum Energy and Impact for Your Team Meetings

Anese shares with the Inc. Small Giants community the basic truths and goals you should hold dear for your meetings, i.e., having clear outcomes, an agenda, clear next steps, clear roles, accountability, and a way to communicate outcomes and key tidbits to those who need to know. Anese lists the “Being” of the meeting, including… Be curious. Be helpful. Assume good. If you’re not sure, be curious. Always strive to be helpful. And when in doubt, assume good. There is most often (in my experience 98% of the time) a positive intention for what people come up with…even if it’s not clear in the moment. Get curious, what’s that positive intention? Seek to understand and you will build beautiful bridges together. Great stuff. Read the entire blog post here and you’ll never show up to another meeting the same!
