How have you taken advantage of the past 60 days?
Life’s noise has gone silent. All of the “extra” is gone. Traffic. Parking. The sprint to the 8 a.m. meeting. Running to the lunch meeting. Running from the lunch meeting. More traffic. Project due! Phone calls. Picking up dinner? Kid’s game. Email (at night). You certainly know I could go on…
This devastating pandemic has forced us to slow down.
However, it’s also provided a unique opportunity to focus. Focus on the basics. The fundamentals. The priorities. What matters most.
So, instead of preparing to get back to things, take advantage of this opportunity to reset and get clarity on how to move forward – BETTER!
Leadership Team Activity
Gather your leaders. Consider and discuss…
- What positive behaviors have you seen emerge during this crisis?
- What have we been forced to do differently that’s actually working well (and we should keep doing it because it’s effective)?
- What simply stopped (and we should keep it that way because it’s not necessary)?
- What are our top 3 priorities now?
As leaders who have the responsibility to move people forward, take time to be intentional in doing so with a renewed sense of clarity and effectiveness.
Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.John F. Kennedy
