How do you stay calm in crises?

How do you stay calm in crises at work?
This TranSpirations focuses on the relationship between Tom’s journaling about his successful heart surgery in 2008 and possible lessons for career/ work/ retirement transitions.

Reflections for Work

Paula D’Arcy helps us understand overcoming fear. “I was witnessing the nature of fear. Gripped by fear, I’ve sometimes stayed in dim rooms and dark corners—like clinging to transitions that have bound me and have fallen into patterns that brought no joy. I never saw as I wandered in those dark and lonely spaces, that freedom was one step away, or that the Spirit could lead me to larger places.”

Sometimes we have to trust our spirit as we face challenges. When we do, we find ourselves doing things in different ways—maybe more effective ways. We find the mentor we’ve been missing; maybe we prepare for the meeting with more rigor and scholarship; or reach out to new leadership in our profession. Possibly we decide to step back and take time to rest before moving on to the next job.
