I’ll be the first to say that our business has been hit hard as so much of our client interaction is face to face. At times like this, we need to pivot, innovate and explore new ways of working.
Navigating the virtual leadership world
Earlier this week, I ran a virtual workshop to a group of senior leaders of ways to navigate and lead through this time of great uncertainty. One of the exercises we explored was how to leverage time to balance your leadership and stay connected.
How to break up the way you manage yourself to manage time working remotely?
We broke it down into 3 key areas of our balanced leadership model:
Lead People (progressive):
Think things like coaching, mentoring, strategic thinking and team interactions. Plan virtual team catch-ups at the start of the week and keep 1:1s consistent and locked in.
Manage activity (maintenance):
Think things that are day to day and operational, more in your team than on it. This includes things such as meetings and performance management, task allocation and so on.
Develop self: (leverage you)
Taking your growth, knowledge and leadership to the next level through reading, podcast and webcasts. Things that assist you in being an industry expert. Saving travel time, optimise these cracks of time for self-growth.
By gaining balance in each area, you will find they feed into each other. Self-growth can increase leadership and role capability, which therefore impacts on the way you lead.
Looking to continue to invest in your teams leaning, connection and motivation?
We are running our development programs as virtual workshops and group coaching sessions. Contact us to find out more.
