Top-performers seem like they have it all. They’re…

  • Highly motivated & ambitious
  • Smart & educated
  • Striving to be the best in all areas of their life

But the unspoken secret is that on the inside many of them feel like they’re:

  • Constantly taking on too much
  • Stuck in a cycle of overwhelm, stress, and overthinking
  • Fighting a losing battle against self-doubt

If despite all of your accomplishments, you’re still not at peace with yourself, you’re not alone. And you’re in the right place.

There’s flipside to success that can deeply affect smart, sensitive high achievers. The emotional depth and ambition that give you your edge can also lead to self-doubt and keep you from fully enjoying your career.

Your success doesn’t have to be a source of suffering.

  1. 3 Ways to Conquer Your Fear of Conflict When Giving Feedback

    feedback, leadership, fear of conflict

    Does the thought of giving negative feedback to an employee make you want to call in sick? If so, a fear of conflict may get in your way.

    But you’re not doing anyone a favor by avoiding conflict. When problems go unaddressed or are swept under the rug, everyone suffers—including you. Avoiding conflict doesn’t just keep you from fulfilling your responsibilities, it also erodes your self-esteem. No one likes being the office push-over and constantly questioning yourself can take a toll on your confidence levels (What if he explodes in rage? What if she says I’m a bad manager?).

    A lack of constructive feedback is also detrimental to your team, depriving them of mentorship and growth opportunities. Workplaces marked by poor communication and unclear expectations are also breeding grounds for imposter syndrome, low trust, and disengagement.

    Improving your ability to deliver feedback clearly and assertively does require practice. Learning to create a container for the strong emotions kicked up by difficult conversations can also take time. But the longer you wait, the higher the cost to both you and your team members.

    Here’s how to get started with conquering your fear of conflict so you can manage more effectively.

    Tackling Your Fear of Conflict

    Many people who avoid confrontation jump to worse-case-scenarios and carry around stories like, “No one likes a micromanager,” or “Bringing up this issue will ruin our working relationship.” While these beliefs may stem from past experiences with rejection and failure, they are a reflection of inaccurate, binary thinking.

    5 Ways to Keep Your Career on Track During a Life Crisis

    You’ve made your career a top priority. You strive for excellence and may have even made sacrifices to advance in the workplace. When life throws you a curveball, it can be challenging — and somewhat disorienting — to stay on track. Major life crises, like a family member being diagnosed with cancer, financial troubles or other life events can (rightfully) consume a lot of your time and attention.

    If you find yourself in the midst of a difficult time, it may seem impossible to carry on as a top performer at work. At the same time, you know it’s important to keep your career on track, not to mention maintain a semblance of routine and normalcy through the rough patch.

    How do you balance a career and a personal crisis? Here are a few tips to navigate the workplace:

    1. Think before you share

    It’s important to find support when going through a tough time, but before divulging the details to those at work, think about the benefits and drawbacks of sharing. If you’re experiencing health issues, for example, may want to disclose some specifics about your situation to your boss and team, since you may require time out of the office for doctors’ appointments.

    Take your workplace culture into account. For example, if you have the kind of work environment where everyone’s personal life is an open book, it may feel natural to share more about what’s going on. If your office is uber professional, it may be more culturally appropriate to only disclose details through a formalized process that involves approaching your manager or the HR department.
