What do we need to do differently to lead in a time of crisis?
I’m seeing some brilliant examples of leadership out there. Many people are digging deep and stepping up to be great leaders. “What do we need to do differently to lead in a time of crisis”? I asked this question in a few of the webinars I ran this week,
The answers I received were fascinating. They included:
🔺Speak to staff frequently
🔺Provide clear communication
The list goes on.
My take on the question above, especially given the answers I received?
To be effective leaders when times are good we don’t need to do anything differently than what great leaders are doing now – during a crisis. We just need to take the time to do it.
This is the main difference that I’m seeing. Managers are taking the time -because they have to.
Managers who are not prepared to lead this way when things return to normal – whatever that is – may need to rethink their role.
Businesses who have managers who are not prepared to lead this way when things return to normal – definitely need to rethink those managers’ role.
