    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/ec/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77

    In life and our professions, we are going to experience chaos. Whether as a result of organizational restructuring, economic downturns, family hardship or otherwise. Feelings of overwhelm, high workload demands, time constraints and communication barriers with family and colleagues can feel especially turbulent during times of stress.

    In this Warrior Mindset blog, we are going to cover the 5 steps you need to take to overcome chaos:

    1. Changing your view of yourself and your perception
      a. See yourself as being unstoppable
      b. See yourself bigger than the evil
    2. Don’t be afraid to lean into battle
    3. The attitude of “I’ve got this!”
    4. Practice discipline
    5. Adaptability skills

    At the end of this blog, there is a helpful video that goes into detail on each of the steps above. If you are ready to better yourself and your career as an Assistant, read on.

    Having a Warrior Mindset is more than aggressiveness and determination; it is about overcoming challenges and adversity. It is about possessing, understanding, and being able to utilize a set of psychological and physical skills that allow someone to be effective, adaptive, and persistent.

    During times of chaos, many executives and organizations are dealing with the effects brought on by change. Their days are later and their priorities have shifted. As their partner, you may find that your days, tasks, and action items have as well. Rather than let the overwhelm consume you, you too must be strategic with your approach. How do you do that?

    It starts with changing your view of yourself and your perception. This takes

    place in your mind. Our viewpoint shrinks or expands in proportion to our courage. The less courage we embrace, the more pessimistic we become. The more courage we embrace, the more optimistic we become. You must see yourself as being unstoppable. Try to picture putting up your shield every time the enemy comes at you (the enemy being workload demands, economic and family crises, organizational restructuring, etc.) and being bigger than the evil.

    Don’t be afraid to lean into battle. You must have an attitude of “I’ve got this! No problem. Go ahead—throw the curveballs at me.” It’s through adversity that you’ll develop resilience.

    Practice discipline. Whether at work or home, you are bound to encounter challenges. Children may require your attention, you may lose motivation or begin to feel unfulfilled with your current workload demands. When these situations occur, the power of commitment and discipline can help you stay on track.

    Warriors are adaptable. Even the best-laid plans will have to be modified. You must be able to think under stress and on the run. The thing is, as assistants, you do this ALL the time. How many times in the day have you had to change meetings, schedules, and travel plans? The difference between your “usual” chaos and championing chaos like a warrior is the speed at which you must think and operate. Here is what warriors do:

    • They aren’t afraid to bend or break the rules if the situation calls for it.
    • They adapt as things unfold.
    • If they lose their weapon, they will find another.
    • If one path is blocked, they will find another.
    • They focus on the end goal and will achieve it however possible.

    Disasters and chaotic times dramatically impact the workplace, affect productivity and rattle nerves. However, with a Warrior Mindset and the right skills, you will be able to thrive. Our Survival Tactics Series for Chaotic Times assistant webinar series provides actionable information through 6 developmental topics.
