What does it mean to lead with heart, and why is this important? We see signs all around of us of what happens when we fail to lead with heart. We end up fighting wars…we neglect those in need… we pollute our environment.

Goals are mostly a good thing, but what happens when personal or corporate goals mortgage the future for short-term gain? At what point do we recognize the folly and re-think our strategy?

Our fears limit us. They hold us back. They keep us from living a positive, proactive life that embraces the good and decries that which needs to be changed. Fear-based decisions hurt us, and they hurt others who are affected by our decisions. The child who is never allowed to make decisions because we fear she’ll make the wrong decisions finally rebels and turns into the teenager from the black lagoon.

When we catch ourselves elongating a mishap or problem, we can compartmentalize. Big word, but relatively easy concept. Think of your life as one that is filled with a series of rooms. One room might hold that CEO who badmouthed your brilliant work. Another might hold your career with the company.

It is in our present moments, that we truly live. Each time we catch a pleasant scent or feel a cool spring breeze we are brought to the immediate. This gives us a chance to notice and appreciate that which surrounds us.

It isn’t easy to experience loss, whether our loss is business-related, financial, or personal in nature. Most of us learned quite recently, for example, that the stock market giveth, and the stock market most definitely taketh away. Our response to a loss such as this can make or break us.

It seems donkeys, though beasts of burden, have limits. Load one to excess, and it will be hard pressed to do your bidding. People who work for us are no different. Some can juggle hats, plates, balls, and flaming torches simultaneously. Even the most talented will drop it all if we add too much to the mix.

We often do this dumb thing in corporations. We want to recognize employees who do brilliant technical work, so we reward them with our plum management jobs. Sure, sometimes these people are brilliant managers, too. Far too often they end up cutting a destructive Tasmanian Devil-like swath through the organization as they spin their way up the corporate ladder.

All we have to do is look into a mirror. I know. It isn’t pleasant to consider that we could be responsible for our lack of success, but there it is. If we have not convinced someone, the onus is still on us to do so. It is not the decision maker’s job to convince him or herself of the idea’s merit.

Little kids run everywhere they go. Ever notice that? They don’t just move in a dignified way from room to room like we do. You get the impression that they’re afraid they’ll miss something exciting if they don’t approach life at warp speed. And they can be brought to a screeching halt by a colony of ants or a pile a leaves. If you catch us running, it’s because we’re late for a meeting.

Ours is a complex, fast-paced world. We all know about the treadmill analogy. Some of us run pretty fast. The mind has a hard time catching up with the body. Some of us don’t so much identify with the treadmill as we do the Tasmanian Devil. Either way, we’re moving fast and we need a break.

As business leaders, what do we truly value? Integrity? Innovation? Delighting our customers? Being an employer of choice? Or are some of these just platitudes that make our annual reports look pristine? Does our aversion to ideas advocating radical change suggest we are really a conservative company, even though our words tell everyone we value risk taking?

We need to work harder to stay positive during some seasons than others. If we haven’t supported humor and laughter in our workplace before, now is the best time to start. There are many benefits. Humor reduces stress levels because it helps us calm the chemicals that zip through our bodies when we’re agitated. We all need the physical balancing laughter offers.

Research suggests workplace-generated stress, not just your average garden variety stress caused by the kids, mind you, but workplace-generated stress links to heart disease. When pollsters ask people to rate their stress, nearly half say they are suffering symptoms of burnout.

This article looks at examples of reframing – of looking at an issue from a broader perspective that can help us move through life without feeling blindsided every time the unexpected happens. When we re-frame a difficult occurrence, we open our minds to positive outcomes and possibilities.

People who lead and manage others might consider the productivity and morale impact when others have to spend time around victims. Years ago a VP at a company I worked for fired someone who did exceptional work. I asked him why he let such a strong performer go. He said no matter how good the work, it didn’t balance out the individual’s destructive behavior on the rest of the staff.
