First up. How are you? Hit reply and send me a quick hello and I will respond accordingly. Let me know how this is affecting you so I can see what information I can provide.
COVID-19 is not my first disaster—I’ve experienced earthquakes, riots and more. We all went through 9/11 together which affected the global economy so profoundly. I’ve learned that some things are predictable, based on those experiences.
More importantly, though, this is a disaster like no other. The entire world has come to a screeching halt. This feels surreal, particularly when everything has been moving so fast these last few years. For the world to come to a dead stop is unthinkable and yet it is happening.
In this video, I walk you through the three stages you will enter and then exit as you move through this disaster. I think you will find this helpful and I’m happy to share. I’m stressing out on how important it is to take this pandemic seriously! And then I try to help you understand how important it is to bring in every voice on the team. I stress how much more effective it can be, at this critical moment, to utilize the diversity of thoughts available on your team. Watch the video for more thoughts regarding this, subscribe to keep learning and stay safe.
You will find yourself trying to strategize about how your business will move forward. Being successful under these new circumstances will require creativity, adaptability and innovation. A diverse and high functioning team can make this work, and you, as a leader, need to encourage the input and ideas from the broadest set of team members possible.
If you are not sure how to encourage diversity of thoughts in your team nor on how you are going to get out of this, let’s spend 90 minutes together and get your plan mapped out.
