Episode Info:

Without question, the COVID-19 pandemic has created unexpected hardships and uncertainty. It's also amplified issues many leaders have failed to adequately address. In this latest edition of Leadership Espresso Shot, I delve into one of these leadership blindspots and reveal why leaders can no longer afford to put it on the back burner. In my previous piece, I shared some strategies based on neuroscience on how leaders can boost their critical thinking in light of the chronic stress environment the current COVID-19 pandemic has created. Based on the overwhelming, positive response to this piece (who knew so many people would be inspired over taking walks to help them boost their critical thinking skills), I wanted to address another critical aspect of leadership that needs to be addressed during this global pandemic. Without question, the current global crisis has not only upended any sense of normalcy, but it has created some wide-ranging economic hardships that many expect will take years to recover from. And while the current pandemic has shone a bright light on various discrepancies found in various societies with regards to issues like income disparity and systemic racism, it has also amplified various issues leaders need to address if they are to be successful in their efforts. For this Leadership Espresso Shot, I'd like to focus on one in particular issue in terms of what leaders need to be mindful of in terms of what they're communicating to their employees. Granted, there are many issues and at times fires that leaders everywhere are being expected to address and resolve. But this issue in particular is especially important if you want to make sure you are accessing the full efforts of everyone on your team in order to not just prevail in today's uncertain times, but create the necessary conditions to succeed and thrive when we finally make through to the other side and can begin anew. And as these editions of Leadership Espresso Shot are designed to be short, but powerful episodes of my leadership podcast, they are perfect for many of us who are working remotely and are looking for something to recharge and inspire you in between the various tasks on your To Do list. So I hope you'll check this latest episode out and if you enjoy it, please do share it with others in your network.
