Change is inevitable. The most important life skill is adaptability, especially when circumstances become more challenging. Now that we’re in a pandemic, instead of getting despondent and stoking anxiety think about how you can choose to use this time to help people.
When such major strategic change is required, we will only succeed if we pool together: #oneteam #onelove #oneworld.
We need to see focused leaders who are authentic, those that will make decisions to support every single person. Bold decision makers to continue driving the economy.
We need empowered employees who are involved and 'bought into' the need for change and can adjust to different ways of working.
We need to trust in our teams in ways never previously experienced, with commitment to each other, an equally shared abhorrence of complacency.
Fortunately, technology underpins our modern workforce, it is now easier than ever to effectively communicate. We are human beings, our life blood is being together, whether your extroverted or introverted, support your team, your peers, your colleagues. Be creative and be empathetic to those that are motivated by togetherness and uncomfortable working from home or being alone.
Social spacing will only work if coupled together with a culture of togetherness and a spirit of survival.
We will get through this.
We all have a moral and a practical duty to support each other through it.
We have purpose, and this isn’t the first time we’ve been challenged, and it won’t be the last. We are all leaders in our own way, and we can all choose how we lead. “They say a pessimist complains about the wind, an optimist expects it to change and the leader adjusts the sails. Adjust your sails and lead.” Steven Bartlett.
Stay calm and wash your hands.
