See through the crisis
The first thing to recognise is that a crisis can be polarising. It can force leaders into cold, hard decision making or nurture empathy and team-centric thinking that can seem at odds with ‘safe’ commercial thinking. The pandemic has already seen very contrasting responses across sectors and individual firms in this regard. But balancing the rational and emotional sides of leadership is incredibly challenging.
In the face of these apparently conflicting priorities, leaders face another tension – the need to juggle both strategy and pragmatism. Long term vision with immediate survival.
At Temporall we’ve worked with a wide range of leadership teams, each facing different problems and opportunities. But one theme has emerged as being absolutely critical to effective decision making – clarity. Without clarity there will always be a barrier to effective strategy, the motivation of teams, working at speed, optimising performance and to accountability within the organisation.
So what does ‘clarity’ mean as you respond to this crisis, and how can it help you develop a more resilient organisation that’s ready to take on the ‘new normal’ as it emerges?
You can find these more detailed insights here on the Temporall blog in the next two weeks, and if you want to discover more about your organisation’s resilience strategy, you can do so here.
