4 tips to resetting your leadership:
3. Remember your break!
4. Know your reactions

- Write down: What was my first reaction? What feelings did I experience when the situation occurred? What thoughts did I have? How did I choose to act, consciously or unconsciously?
- Practice your ability to stop when the situation arrives and feel your own emotional and rational reaction. Breathe, and calm down.
- Then consider: What would be the most appropriate response right here?
