Chapter 3. Master Yourself > Practice in the Moment

Practice in the Moment

It’s one thing to be a well-grounded sage in the comfort of your home or in the quiet moments of solitude you give yourself at work. It’s another proposition entirely to keep your balance and listen to your wisdom in the heat of the moment with a team. We practice mastering ourselves in the moment so that we can better open ourselves to being a servant leader and to harness our emotions and choose what to do with our reactions. Yet we’re human. We react.

Sometimes, the team needs you to remain unfiltered—to see your reaction as a reflection of what just happened. More often, though, your reaction is about you and has no place in the coaching. Notice your reaction, and consciously choose whether to act on it. This is the practiced skill.
