Remote Leadership in Times of Uncertainty
How to lead through ongoing challenges with a human approach
For leaders who care about business and people
In many parts of the world the COVID pandemic is in full force - again or still, work-from-home mandates are getting re-installed, lockdowns are at the horizon. For some of us it is as if we were reaching the finish line of a marathon and the race director told us: "Go back to the start and run again." For others the struggles of re-enganging and re-boarding are real. In the US, the "Great Resignitaion" is in full swing, a job change is on the mind of nearly half of all U.S. employees (Gallup 2021).
Here is what people need right now:
They need to be listend to and need to feel heard
They need to talk
They need to feel that they belong
They need to stay connected to each other and to your organization
They need emotional support
The need care
They need flexibility
The need to feel trusted
They need an outlook and a vision
Leaders - by definition- are in charge to provide what their people need and to navigate through challenges.
Remote Leadership in Times of Uncertainty is an offer which helps leaders in a pragmatic way with effective tools, hands-on tips and most importantly a human approach to people management. What works remotely works in hybrid or face-to-face settings as well. People look at their employers for guidance and support. It is where they dedicate their most precious resources. It is you and your organization's purpose they deeply care for - no matter where their desks are located.
