We’re currently experiencing an abrupt extraction from our lives, which comes with an entirely new set of fears. This often feels like a very singular, isolating event, but it’s through collaboration, patience and connection with one another that we’ll thrive again.
In times of uncertainty, a leader’s most important job is to provide stability, guidance, generosity, patience and hope. We will need to make hard decisions over the coming weeks and months, and it’s important that we’re not fearful in our approach. I recommend leading with your vulnerability and giving your clients, colleagues and teams a safe space to do the same.
For more on how you can be a lighthouse in the darkness during these trying times, you can read my blog post, Being A Lighthouse in the Darkness.
And check out Session 1 of my educational series on BeetLIVE for more thoughts on leadership and strengthening your work relationships during the current crisis.
