There's a ton of change going on around us, and that can be disconcerting. Most of us are accustomed to believing we control or influence much of the change in our organizations. Now, though, there's a fair amount of change affecting us from outside the organization that we don't control and can't influence. I'm not touting "victim mentality" at all; merely that we may have a new level of discomfort in not having a high degree of control over some of these changes and challenges.
Be cognizant of that -- your staff is watching. Your folks look to you for calm, direction, and demonstrated leadership. They can panic and worry without your help (some are downright good at it) ... they need you to be the positive example of leadership, setting the stage and direction for their efforts. Regardless of environmental challenges.
To belabor an obvious point, leading is easy... until it isn't. These times require a special kind of leadership. One that commands attention, respect, and followership.
Be that kind of leader. And make sure those other leaders in the organization are equipped to do the same.
Give us a call if we can help with that.
