Calm and authentic, building trust
Those of us that perform leadership roles know that leadership is more of an art than a science. It is personal, deeply personal, and it is also interpersonal. We are all prone to falling into comfortable patterns in our day to day lives, and our leadership roles are no different. It is not until something disrupts the equilibrium that we tend to call into question how effectively we are exercising the leadership responsibilities we have in our organisations.
Sometimes disruption takes the form of some unexpected feedback, or stepping into a new role with different stakeholders, people or responsibilities. Right now, that disruption has arrived in the form of a health and economic situation that has all the features of a complex crisis on a global scale. The future is unclear, there are many moving parts, solutions to the problem are contested, everyone has a view and society is behaving in alarmingly unpredictable and irrational ways.
Contained in this toolkit are some thoughts, drawn from some relevant thinking on these topics but also from observations, reflections and learnings from years of collective experience.
This disruption will change the way we work, individually and as teams.There are opportunities for us all, as leaders, to embrace new and future ways of working right now.
It is our hope that this toolkit supports you as a leader to navigate the people and productivity challenges inherent in this time of great disruption.
Indeed, this challenging period is what some have planned for but hope never comes and for some others, this is the time to evolve and be better.
