Composure is a must-have in the business world as well as in life. The ability of an individual to conduct his/herself in a confident manner, keep up and exhibit a cool and confident behaviour while keeping the anxiety in others at bay and engaging them in lively conversations that could produce noteworthy outcomes is a must-have quality as an entrepreneur.
Pressure and stress are unavoidable in business. In the process of trying to get things done, you could get heated up, lose your head in the process and become really hostile and rude. You may even become overly emotional and very touchy.
Not everyone is good under stress or can comfortably work under pressure (though some people thrive on stress and pressure to be able to produce their best). Understand yourself and then understand others.
Difficult it may seem, but always try to keep your calm and stay composed. Sometimes, you just feel like you have to react or you would explode. If you must express yourself in a calm manner, not letting your emotions get the better part of you. There are days when we just find ourselves under the weather and have personal issues bothering us. Do not take it out on your employees or colleagues at work. At the risk of sounding selfish, be sure to drop all personal issues at the entrance to your workplace and focus on your job for the day.
If you have a friend at work or someone you could unburden your mind to, do so during your break. At least an unburdened mind helps you concentrate better. If not, at the close of work, you can pick your bag of issues and go sort them out. Always keep yourself happy and motivated. Let nothing steal your joy. Only a happy and positive individual impacts positively on others and has great productive output.
Be such an individual.
