“Unprecedented” is a word that’s been used a lot over the past year, but for business leaders still trying to navigate the socio-economic fallout, it’s still relevant. From this article crafted by Courier, it’s obvious that leaders must change their mindsets to focus more on the short-term strategy.
While there’s no playbook for COVID, there are a few things that matter when shaping your approach to leadership in any crisis. Courier lists five in particular:
Be ruthlessly objective in your strategy, whatever it may be
Take absolute responsibility for your team
Be able to constantly motivate yourself
Be able to take effective action when encountering pitfalls
Think about your people – and taking them with you
