Let's face it, leadership in a crisis is like crisis management . . . on steroids!
Shift Happens! We haven’t experienced anything like this in modern history. We are in uncharted territory. Everyone is in crisis mode. We are dealing with seismic shifts that will have aftershocks for months and years to come. What worked before will definitely not work anymore. It is requiring that we regroup, refocus and reinvent just about everything . . . overnight!
How you lead and manage people now will determine what you'll be known for later. Let's face it, our leadership is being road tested like never before. And, while it might seem counter-intuitive, the worst time is the best time to up-level your leadership. After all, everyone is looking to YOU for guidance and reassurance.
Here are just some of the things leaders are facing in the midst of this unprecedented crisis:
Old priorities are GONE -- and so is their clarity and focus
Needing to rethink everything overnight -- it's totally overwhelming
Managing everyone's fear, stress, and anxiety -- it's exhausting
Leading in the face of uncertainty and confusion -- it's driving limited thinking
Getting into a reactionary 'cut, cut, cut mentality' -- worrying it will be costly
Want to know the related essential shifts you need to Survive and Thrive, Now and Later?
Can you relate? If so, read on. Need help implementing. them? We're here to help you make those essential shifts so that you can survive and thrive, now and later.
Go slow to go fast leadership
Time for a Plan Z!™ The old "Plan B" approach is totally inadequate. While counter-intuitive, it's time to embrace a Go Slow to Go Fast Leadership Strategy. To create a plan attuned to the world we're living in now. It's time to invest now or pay forever! Now more than ever, it is critical that you set aside time to focus on you and your leadership. There's so much at stake as you refocus on what matters most and recalibrate and redirect efforts. It's essential that you create a new level of Clarity, Commitment, Capacity and Courage and be equipped to take the actions needed to survive now and thrive later.
Now is not the time to go it alone! It’s a time to laser-focus on what’s most important and create UNSTOPPABLE MOMENTUM. We'd love to help you develop your Plan Z™ and accelerate your results. We will work with you to put together just the right mix of solutions going forward — designed specifically to address your #1 Challenge AND to fully leverage the opportunities it presents.
Yes, help is on the way
OK, there's an elephant in the room and it's not a pretty pink one. It's COVID-19 and it's demanding that you shift your leadership into high gear, literally overnight. Yes, your leadership and how you are managing people is more important now than ever. While it may feel overwhelming, it doesn't have to be that way!
Getting the support YOU need is no longer a nice to have, it's essential. Navigating these seismic shifts and inevitable aftershocks requires a whole new level of leadership -- now and later. And, as the old saying goes, you can't give out of an empty cup. Sad reality is that many leaders are literally running on empty. Not a great place to be when so much is at stake!
It's all too easy to miss out on opportunities that are right in front of you. Let's face it, you can't fix what you can't see, especially when you're in the midst of crisis.
Then there's the tough question, "Who can you trust?" As the leader, who can you be fiercely* honest with, without fear of judgment and retribution? And, who will be fiercely* honest with you when you need it?
Definition of Fiercely Honest: It means getting real. It's about intensity, strength, power and passion. It's about telling the truth and letting the truth be told. After all, unreal conversations are very costly, more so now than ever!
