The most crucial issues faced by any organization in the current times through this crisis are caring for and inspiring employees, embracing purpose, and improving effectiveness. All these come down to just one simple thing – Leadership.
The following points related to leadership have made our leaders even more effective especially since the pandemic started. Collectively, they summarize how to lead a team to success during uncertain times or regular business.
1) Empowering Employees
There is a great misconception that employee empowerment requires, “leaving them alone” and hoping to rise to the occasion. Empowerment requires more involvement.
What does it mean to empower your team and what actions can drive appropriate results? Empowerment is a high-touch contact sport but for hands-on leadership to be truly empowering, you need to be an inspiring coach.
2) Communicate Effectively
During a crisis, the most important and trusted source of information for any employee is often their employer, and a leader’s words and actions have a major impact on the well-being of whom they lead and manage. Effective and clear communication with teams helps organizations through uncertain times with a high sense of respect, purpose, and trust.
3) Inspiring Individuals
The asset to maintaining sustainable performance is keeping track of both performance and health. Doing so at the organization level continues to create core and lasting results. This also enhances a true competitive advantage required to apply at the individual level.
While the conversations about the future of work started even before the pandemic, the crisis accelerated things significantly. But this also suggests that significant opportunity exists.
