The Gift of Frustration

We all get frustrated at work. Colleagues say insensitive things. Patients cancel appointments. Co-workers miss deadlines. There’s too much happening. There’s not enough happening. Too many meetings. Too little time.

Moments of frustration have, at there core, gifts and important insights about how we are at work. What makes us (and our team) tick. And what could make us even more effective together.

Are you accepting the gift of frustration? Or are you resisting it? How is this resistance impacting your performance?

Try using your next moment of frustration at work as an opportunity to learn more about yourself. Your leader. Your team.

What do you notice? What helps you get “unfrustrated?” How do these “unfrustrating” behaviors change your results?
