Are You a Boss Willing to Lead Your Team?

In my last blog, What Kind of A Boss Are You?, we saw that "Team Body" does the best job it can given the leadership, tools and materials provided by its "Mind-Boss".  

The body gives feedback all the time about whether the leadership and materials are sufficient or not.  How do you know?  It tells you.  It speaks.  

As the boss, you might not have ever learned its language (who thought you needed to?) Maybe you've relied on interpreters.  Great interpreters are highly valuable; but if they're off duty when the team is ready to strike, you could have a big problem on your hands. What if you learned the language enough to understand and respond appropriately to diffuse the situation? What would that be worth to you in terms of time, money and aggravation saved?

If you want to be a better boss, start by listening to your team.  If you've been distracted or uninterested you may have missed obvious communications.  Think of it as sign language that you can see and/or feel.  The mind/body has two primary languages:   Well-Being and Pain.   

Well-Being demonstrates as things like:  ease of movement, good sleep, healthy digestion, healthy weight relative to frame, feeling happy or at least content.

Pain, the "Time-to-Get-Attention Language" demonstrates in different ways:
Muscular/joint/bone pain - neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, back, hip, knee, ankle, foot pain
Poor digestion, extra weight, feeling cranky, irritated, weary, angry, etc.

As mentioned last blog,

You can blame the team for betraying you and live with the status quo.

Or, you can be the boss who provides the leadership and tools your team needs to thrive.

Invest in yourself.  Learn to understand your body/mind, partner with your team, and wield your power to direct your health and truly live the life you desire.
