One of the things that we NEED…
One of the things that we NEED as human beings is a goal to work towards.
You might call it a project or a campaign, either way having this ‘thing’ to work towards gives us a sense of purpose, of certainty and with this, a feeling of security as we know what is expected of us.
As we have moved into a whole new way of working, that goal/project/campaign may have temporarily disappeared or at least changed.
And with it our sense of certainty and security.
No matter how much you might be trying to keep the old ways working, the landscape has shifted, Life will not and cannot remain the same.
Leaders, this is now your time.
You have never been more needed.
This is the time for you to help your people recreate that certainty and give them a sense of purpose, whatever that might be.
Because at some point life will resume.
The question is what the new landscape will look like and how you, as a leader, will have helped your team navigate this period.
These are uncomfortable times so now is the time to tap into your courage and resourcefulness and provide as much CLARITY as you can for your people.
This clarity will move them towards certainty, security and positivity in this crazy time.
