Worrying can get in the way of success in business

“Worrying is the same thing as banging your head against the wall. It only feels good when you stop." By John Powers: Author and motivational speaker

How true is this? Worrying can be painful; it saps your energy, brings up other issues to worry about, and does not get you closer to success. But, when you stop, it feels good- a relief.

Here are some ways to discourage group worry:

• Open, honest and transparent communication
• Cascading messages (repeat key messages so people hear them and remember them)
• Be present, available and responsive
• Correct and clarify assumptions
• Ask questions
• Turn worries into questions – sometimes these questions will foster creative thinking!
