As leaders, our desire to maintain harmony, gain consensus and not make others uncomfortable can prevent us from taking the bold action that is necessary for change to occur. Did it take a tragedy like the pandemic to drive leaders to create bold change where necessary? Will leaders be willing to drive necessary systemic and organizational changes once we are back to our new normal?
Having a professionally trained coach during this time of COVID-19 related challenges gives leaders the tools they need to remain open and meet life face-to-face.
COVID-19 presents challenges to our sense of certainty, autonomy and relatedness. Leaders have a critical role in keeping their organizations focused and functioning.
When leaders fail to fully understand the deliverables of their level of leadership, organizations are over managed but under led. Fulfilling the role and responsibilities of leadership requires “Leveling Up,” or thinking and acting more strategically.
My best thinking on the problem my team and I have sought to solve, and the change we seek to make as coaches is this: we help leaders to make their leadership matter in a constructive way.
There is plenty of volatility and uncertainty in life. Focus on what you have some control over, and don’t spend time trying to control what you cannot.
