This is a very stressful time, so we’re all doing it.
That’s just par for the course, really. And it doesn’t help that information and advice is constantly changing. Something which seemed right yesterday may feel like totally the wrong thing today.
So how should we deal with this? Just crawl in a hole and hunker down until it’s all over?
Not if you’re a leader.
No, you’re tasked with helping the organization to move forward. To make decisions, help people get aligned, and to adapt to changing circumstances.
If you’re making mistakes, everyone else is too. These are uncertain times, unlike anything we’ve experienced in our lifetimes.
So be gentle. Be loving. Be supportive. Forgive.
That’s exactly the reason why I banded together with other business coaches in northern Colorado to offer coaching at no cost during this crisis. If you’re interested, you might check us out at https://nccovidcoaching.wordpress.com. It’s no cost, no sales pitch. It’s just because we want to support our local business community in this time of great stress.
