Leadership today is like Crisis Management on Steroids
Keys to being a great leader during a crisis of global proportions:
Provide a healthy dose of empathy, care, compassion and grace for yourself and others.
Be more 'present' while managing your people -- even when you're not together.
Build trust by speaking the truth -- and then act on it; then, make further adjustments along the way, as needed.
Communicate, communicate, communicate -- about new realities and new priorities.
Collaborate, collaborate, collaborate -- there's genius in working together.
Listen like never before -- learn as much as you can from those closest to the work.
Ask your customers what they need -- do your best to find creative ways to meet them.
Be wise enough to ask for advice -- and humble enough to accept it.
What is this crisis revealing about your leadership and your company culture
How you lead people now
will determine what you'll be
known for later
