A good friend asked me a great question regarding this season of the pandemic. “When you look back on this time, how would you like to describe your leadership?” The question placed my mind immediately into the dream state. It helped me see the opportunity in the midst of the challenge. The word ‘like’ is aspirational.
As you consider this question for yourself, you may want to evaluate it in terms of the following three categories:
1.Leading Self: Managing Stress, Anxiety, Composure, Presence and Character
2.Leading Others: Connection, Developing Your Team, Being Present With Them, Accountability and Feedback
3. Leading the Business: Creating and Executing Strategy, Communication, Casting Vision and Financial Leadership
The answer to the question becomes your intention. Focus on that intention as you move through this time.
