Does your workplace composure remind you of a well disciplined symphony orchestra or a very loud rap song with lots of noise? Slow and steady composed management styles often help you reach your objectives more quickly and effectively than stomping from one crisis to another.

Plan of action

Workplace composure is probably the most misunderstood of critical management skills. Composure at work underpins the achievement of organisational success. As employees and cultures develop they crave for composure instead of never ending crisis management. It is often easier to identify if your workplace does not have composure, than if it does. Take the test to see how composed your managers and leaders are. If you score more than 15 points you don't work in a composed workplace

  • How many swear words would you hear on a typical day from your managers and leaders in your workplace? (1 point per swear word)
  • How many negative comments would you hear from your managers and leaders? (3 points per comment)
  • How many comments from your managers and leaders in a typical day would be similar to "have to" "need to", "have no choice", "our hands are tied", "there is no alternative" or "must". (6 points per statement)
  • How many times do your internal/external customers complain to you about your product/services?(9 points per complaint)

A bit of trivia Which career has the highest life expectancy?

A - Dentist, B - Actuary, C - Farmer, D - Orchestra Conductors

D - Orchestra conductors/composers have the highest life expectancy of any career. If you think about it they are calm, methodical and composed throughout their lives. The other 3 groups have very high suicide rates.
