126 | Achieve Peak Performance Avoiding the Leadership HALT

I don’t care how mature you are in your personality style or how much emotional intelligence you have…

If you are Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired you are setting yourself up for failure.

The HALT acronym has been around for a while. It’s been used by the 12 Step community and counselors around the globe.

There’s a reason for that…it’s an effective framework to help avoid the pitfalls that keep you from achieving and maintaining your highest level of performance.

Hungry – we’ve all experienced this one!
Anger – usually a symptom of a bigger issue.
Lonely – When you are depressed and alone…watch out!
Tired – Have you ever snapped at somebody when you didn’t get your 8 hours? (Or is that just me?)

Throw in a bit of conflict at work or home and HALT will put the emergency break on your performance. You aren’t going anywhere.

The same goes for your team. Are you allowing your family or team to sabotage their performance by walking the HALT line?

Today’s show will help you maintain your focus and peak state by drawing insight from this simple acronym.
