3.2.2 Taks for Sel-Management

Leaders sometimes take for granted that all team members are able to manage their impulses. You need to teach them how they are expected to behave, rather than assuming that they are ‘bad’ when they behave in ways that do not align with your expectations. Impulse control is an important component of self-management. An important ability in impulse control is knowing the difference between feelings and actions, learning to make better decisions by controlling the impulse to act and then identifying alternative actions and their consequences. Similar to the tasks for self-awareness, you can facilitate their self-management by teaching them how to do mindfulness exercises. When they are aware of what they are feeling and why they feel that, they can have better control over their thoughts and actions. 

Helping them learn how to motivate themselves can also help them manage their emotions and actions. Team members are more productive when they are self-motivated and engaged in their duties. Set regular meetings or consultations where you can check up on their progress and ask about how they are doing. During these discussions, you can give them specific feedback on how they can do tasks and identify what motivates them. Strive to learn about what they believe about themselves and their abilities, what they care for and what tasks are likely to give them the success that will keep them working hard. You can motivate them by developing engaging tasks and providing rewards for their success.
