Leading Your People Through and OUT of a Crisis
Will You be Bitter or Better for the Experience?
About the Webinar
“Preparing well today for the future prevents repairing tomorrow.”
The COVID-19 crisis/pandemic/shutdown has been one of the best educations a leader or an organization can have, if they use this time to learn…from their priorities, their reactions and their people’s dependency on them to stand up and take authority. These recent circumstances pose a golden opportunity for your staff and team to see leadership in you that builds confidence and security in uncertain times. When this circumstance passes (and you know it will!), you will be at their forefront of staff and team priorities and support in the world ahead. It will also allow more time to prioritize your “main thing” as people look to you when we are all fully back open for business.
- A crisis will prioritize for us what we will not prioritize for ourselves. It keeps the “main thing,” the main thing. It forces us to make critical changes we wouldn’t have made in smooth times.
- Uncertainty causes more stress than bad news. More people would prefer bad news to no news at all.
- Respect is gained on difficult ground. All growth is uphill. The more difficult the ground, the more respect you earn.
- A crisis teaches us to give thanks in all circumstances. “You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice.” -Bob Marley
- A crisis tests if you live by what you teach. Leaders know the way, show the way and go the way; not lip service.
- A crisis is good for us to remember that we are not in control. We need to keep faith and good relationships.
What’s in it for you? Every manager and leader will learn what they can do to guide their organization out of the darkness and into the light of day.
