It can be lonely as a leader, especially right now during times of unprecedented disruption. In this blog, we explore the role of resilience in strengthening leadership and organizations in times of uncertainty.
There is no doubt the effects of COVID-19 and the ensuing social isolation and movement restrictions have surprised and shocked people everywhere. Being proactive during this challenging time will help better prepare your organization and your customers for what may lie ahead. Our current situation is temporary but business as we know it will certainly look different in the coming months. Carving out time to think proactively now about what shifts you and your organization can make to meet new demands will position you powerfully for the future.
Rapid movement to mandatory telework and the increase of event cancelations or postponements leave leaders in a difficult position: How do I successfully preserve the continuity of operations while respecting the wellbeing of staff operating in a fully remote environment? Learn how to make the best decision for your organization during COVID-19.
When The Clearing made the choice to institute mandatory telework in the wake of COVID-19, I was very anxious about staying productive in a 100% remote environment. I am no stranger to mobility, I work from a variety of locations(my home, client sites, or the office)regularly, based on my workload, meetings, and personal needs.
As our world continues to grapple with what’s happening around us, everyone, including leaders, struggle to keep up with rapidly evolving conditions. As organizations adjust to operating in virtual environments, three leadership principles emerge as reminders of how you can impact and lead your teams and organizations through uncertainty.
What is your personal workstyle? What commitments do you have that may impact working hours? These questions are even more relevant as we’re scrambling to understand how to balance a healthy home and work environment now that they’re in one space. It’s the perfect time to set boundaries with your team on how and when to communicate best with you.
You have diligently planned, prepared, and exercised. And yet your playbook doesn’t work today. Why? We’ve exceeded many organizations’ previous thinking capacity – exploding through the boundaries of anything the most experienced leaders have ever encountered. And yet you, and I, and we, must continue to lead.
We are leading our people through a global crisis. In this series, we will explore leading through a pandemic. Part #1 will outfit you with the correct response to use when people share their fears and concerns with you, illuminating two common rookie errors to avoid.
Peak performance leaders understand that they have little control over the facts of this pandemic. What they do have is 100% control over how they contextualize those facts. With a continuous stream of information flowing from every radio, television, and internet connection, it’s critical to parse it all into facts, context, and beliefs.
