Today I want to talk directly to the leaders.
If you lead a business, a team, a family or even just yourself, listen up.
In this time of crisis, you need to lead with conviction and compassion.
In these trying times (and from today, always) you must communicate openly and frequently.
You must lead with care and decisiveness.
You must engage on a human level and grasp that people are scared and feel alone. Understanding and patience go much further than aggression and instruction.
You must trust your team to do the right thing at the right time for themselves, for you, your company and their fellow humans. If you don’t think they can do the right thing then you are working or living with the wrong people. Now is the time to figure this out.
You must take a breath.
Take a deep breath and realise that everyone is going through this together but in their own way.
There is no right way to be scared. There is no right way to feel alone. There is no right way to survive.
The only right thing to do is no harm.
Uncertainty is now part of our daily lives. As a leader, you need to figure out how to live in uncertain times and adapt.
It is a difficult time to be a leader but leaders thrive in difficult times.
