The mental and emotional wounds that were suffered since the start of 2020 will take time to heal. Unfortunately, too many people don’t know where to turn.
People are naturally attracted to leaders who are perceptive, empathetic, controlled, self-aware and willing to take responsibility for their actions.
Whether your organization survives or thrives in a post-COVID-19 world may come down to how well your people can work together.
To keep employees productive, engaged and performing at their best, leaders need to change their leadership skill set tone to focus on collaboration, authenticity and a high level of emotional intelligence.
Everybody has different communication styles, and learning how to adapt to your team members’ styles can help you succeed.
It’s not enough to ask if people are OK. Managers need to want to know if they are OK. They need to care. They need to connect.
What can we bring with us when the dust settles to increase efficiency and collective impact?
Provide new managers with self-study resources to assess their levels of emotional intelligence, and have them set personal development goals.
As organizations begin to take a more global approach to business, they need leaders who have the skills to lead in a global organization.
