It’s very easy to think that, as career-minded professionals, we have to divide ourselves into two sides. One side being the work side while the other is devoted to our personal lives. However, it’s important to remember that these things are intrinsically linked because we’re one person. It’s improbable to expect our professional lives to never seep into our personal lives and vice versa. But what you can do is perform activities outside of work that will assist in you being a more effective leader within the workplace.
Having a bad day at work is a normal occurrence. But if it gets to a point where you can’t recall the last time you had a truly good day at work then it may be time to start thinking about pursuing a new role. But, before you make that potentially life-changing decision, there are a few things you should consider.
Whether you’re a high-performing leader, ambitious overachiever, or simply someone managing day-to-day responsibilities on a consistent basis, stress will inevitably begin to mount up in your life. This compounding stress will not just weigh heavily on you, but has the potential to affect those around you as well. So how do you best navigate work stress and its impact at home?
When you’re building your career, some of the work you do is exciting. Some of it is not. In fact, some of it is downright monotonous.
If you have ever launched anything in your career then you have probably uttered the words, “*Well, we will see how this goes.*” But does it have to be this way? Do entrepreneurs always have to be flying blind? The answer, to cut to the chase, is absolutely not.
There is a very popular proverb in the entrepreneurial community that states, “If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far go together.” And while we at MNTR wholeheartedly embrace this saying, a new study coming out of the Wharton School seems to suggest otherwise.
In most business issues, money is at the root. Generally, for a startup, those problems stem from cash flow, purchasing at scale, or capital to expand. While these are difficult problems to solve, the excess of money can actually be a far worse problem for a business.
There’s a common misconception that great leadership and fear cannot coexist. The truth of the matter is that fear comes along with great leadership. While creativity and passion are essential components of bringing an idea into the world, the same can be said for trepidation. It’s unrealistic to believe that fear won’t be joining us in our journey to greatness.
