113: We are not creating oxygen

We are not creating oxygen. This saying is a guiding principle of our Clockwork culture - we say it all the time in our team, to our clients, to our family members, and anyone operating from a frantic energy. There’s a difference between taking something seriously and thinking we’re creating oxygen.   In this episode of the Run Like Clockwork Podcast, Adrienne + Emily dive into this motto and way of operating that is countercultural to hustle culture norm. This is an important part of our Clockwork Your LIfe series because this reframe will impact all areas of life + business… if you embrace it.   Topics Adrienne + Emily cover in this episode: The reframe from panic to perspective How to create a team culture that cultivates an environment of calm What to assess if your team is giving off frantic energy How available are you for others… really?    A culture of creating oxygen is often a byproduct of a business in need of efficient systems and processes. Nothing in your business should be an “emergency.” Clockwork really helps you equip your team and systems to alleviate the “creating oxygen” energy… but it also starts with you and the culture you choose to cultivate.   How do you feel about this guiding principle? Is it one you have adopted or want to? We’d love to hear from you!
