21-Day Challenge – Day 20 – What happens if we don’t charge our batteries?

28441408_mWe’re coming to the end of our 21-day challenge and I’d like to take a moment to look at what happens if we do not charge our batteries. We loose leadership impact and set ourselves up for miscommunication and conflicts

Why is this? Based on the research done by  Dr. Taibi Kahler we know that if we do not get our psychological needs met in a positive way, we are unconsciously looking for ways to meet our needs in a negative way. Here’s what happens when the different psychological needs of the phase (*) are not met in positive ways:

  • A thinker with a psychological need of getting recognition for work and time structure, who does not get his needs met in a positive way, will unconsciously look to get this need met in a negative way through overcontrolling behavior
  • A persister with a psychological need of getting recognition for opinions and achievements who does not get his needs met in a positive way, will unconsciously look to get this need met in a negative way, which is through crusading and preaching behavior.
  • A harmonizer with a psychological need of getting recognition as a person and sensory needs who does not get his needs met in a positive way, will unconsciously look to get this need met in a negative way, which is through making silly mistakes.
  • A rebel with a psychological need of getting playful contact who does not get his needs met in a positive way, will unconsciously look to get this need met in a negative way, which is through blaming others for mistakes they made themselves
  • An imaginer with a psychological need of solitude who does not get his needs met in a positive way, will unconsciously look to get this need met in a negative way, which is through passive withdrawal – sitting and waiting, starting everything and not finishing anything.
  • A promoter with a psychological need of excitement who does not get his needs met in a positive way, will unconsciously look to get this need met in a negative way, which is through manipulating.

These are the 2nd degree distress behaviors which arise when we do not take care of our batteries and of our personal energy.  Leading from these 2nd degree distress behaviors is destructive as it damages relationships and we loose leadership impact. Communication from here is not possible as we are not in clear thinking modus, but in an unconscious predictable distress mechanism. Regardless of what happens in our lives, we are responsible for our own personal energy and for the impact we have on others. Charging your batteries with the PCM psychological needs is one powerful way to influence, manage your personal energy and keep your leadership impact positive and influential.

It is valuable!
