I’m wondering what it feels like to be on the White House Staff these days. James Comey, Sean Spicer, Anthony Scaramucci, Steve Bannon, and the list goes on. There are people on both sides of the aisle trying to pull this administration down from the outside; there are leakers on the inside; there are loyalists who love the President and what they do, and there are people hanging on , just because they want to keep their jobs. Then you’ve got a president that insists on getting in his own way, even though he is quite possibly trying to do his best for the country.
Talk about workplace stress! It must be scary to wait for the words, “You’re fired.” But I think, in this circumstance, it rather feels like a guillotine hovering overhead and the tension resembles something that Anne Boleyn and other wives of Henry VIII might have felt for fear of falling out of favor. It’s difficult to work effectively under this kind of tension.
In cases like this, it’s more important that ever to maintain your strong inner core, keep you gaze focused on your goals, know who you really are, and what your purpose is. If you resist getting caught up in the drama, and there’s certainly plenty of it, it’s easier to maintain your centered place. Looks like the “Mooch” just couldn’t resist and was out within ten days. He says he expected his tenure to be short, but was hoping it would last longer than a carton of milk. Being hot headed in a diplomatic job is just a recipe for disaster.
I have to say that Kellyanne Conway is my hero, for the way she stays calm and focused, knowledgeable and grounded in the midst of such a chaotic environment.
Curious about your thoughts on this. Have you ever been in such a chaotic environment? How did you handle it? Please share in the comments below.
