Anatomy of a hijack example:
John was a leader who was known to
have a hot temper. He was aware of it and his supervisor had it as a
part of his performance review.

He was at an internal national sales
meeting presenting to his constituents when “he lost it” by yelling at
some of his team members during the presentation to put their
computers away.

There was hush and awkwardness as he continued
his presentation. This was very embarrassing for him and cemented
his “hot head image” and limited his promotion possibilities.

What happened? John felt extreme pressure to do a good job. He
prepared well and did the whole presentation himself. He did not
delegate any of the preparation or delivery to his team members.

We all get hijacked at times, but great leaders know themselves well,
anticipate situations that may be stressful for them and take
preventative measures.

In the stressful moment, they know what they
are feeling AND thinking. They then have multiple constructive
solutions to handle the amygdala hijack and maintain their top
performance.


The biggest hurdle to overcome will always be the perception of an insult, real or imagined.

It's the 'dissing' thing that rears up and can put people in a box six feet under.
