Leading through Crisis: Adapting Your Leadership for the New Normal
Leaders find themselves in uncharted territory, never before seen in their lifetimes. The difficulty of leading in disorder comes not just from the nature of the crisis at hand, but also from the challenges of working with organizational models that were built for scale, efficiency and stability. Worse, our brain wiring constrains us from the creativity we need to improvise in a totally new set of circumstances.
There is no crisis playbook for where we find ourselves today. These new circumstances require leaders to effectively lead their employees, teams and businesses through an unknown which is plagued by turbulence, shorter time horizons, and rapid mobilization. To chart this new course and build the “next normal,” leaders need to face reality and improvise through the chaos while adjusting and pivoting as the situation changes. They need to build cohesion and community through trust and empathy that galvanizes collective determination. And lastly, leaders need to step up their virtual leadership to focus on the present and prepare for tomorrow.
Now is the time to reorient and retool ourselves and learn how to adapt our leadership and objectives as the context shifts, and we must bring our people with us on this unprecedented journey.
