When you walk in to a space, you can feel if it uplifts or not. As leaders, we need to show up as an environment too - our energy, physicality, and language can cause positive change, or it can sabotage engagement.
Energy: Are you inward or outward focused? Are you in your head or in the room?
Physicality: Focus on your breath, dig your toes in to the ground, and do power poses.
Language: Avoid commanding language and absolutes, use inclusive and collaborating language.
