Even in these un-precedented times, leaders still need to lead, and now their importance is greater than ever.
Leaders lead from the heart, from the soul, and from the mind, but how do you lead in a time that goes against every fiber of your being in running a business, this is where true leaders come to the fore.
Leadership can be broken down into many elements, but a true leader will be a general, someone who instinctively knows the right course of action, someone who has the welfare of their troops as the number 1 priority.
How do you manage to keep people safe in a working environment, and implement health and safety regulations to battle against an invisible killer?
This is something I don’t envy for any manager. The health and safety, and especially the mental health of your employees have to be paramount, and leaders had to understand that the way they usually do business will never be the same again, so, therefore, they have to learn to transcend to the new norm.
Leadership is about respect, resolving, prevention caring, and getting the job done. Can we really use the virus as an excuse not to lead properly? We as leaders need to adapt to an ever-changing landscape in the business world.
The mental health of your workforce is going to be so important and will have a massive impact on whether or not your business will succeed, so a good leader will invest heavily in allocating resources to the well being of the employees.
