Do you ever wonder where you need to start when you experience team conflicts? Then the first step is to take responsibility for your own reactions.

In her article, “To Improve Your Team, First Work on Yourself”, Jennifer explains  how  surprised people were when asked  to take responsibility for their own reactions

She notes that one must have an Internal self-awareness.  Internal self-awareness involves understanding your feelings, beliefs, and values — your inner narrative.  One must also have an external self-awareness which involves understanding how our words and actions impact others.

Then we have to take personal accountability.  When we think of accountability, we typically think of holding others accountable. But the most effective leaders and teammates are more focused on holding themselves accountable.

Jennifer further explains that a small shift in one’s mindset will directly impact behaviors and can have a significant positive impact on an entire team.

Take Action!
