4 Things Leaders Need to Focus on to be More Effective

It’s the beginning of June, and we’ve officially made it through almost three months of this Coronavirus Pandemic. People are slowly beginning to head back to work as things begin to go back to normal. But are we going back? Some of you aren’t physically heading back to work and the question we want to ask is do we want to go back to normal?

The “normal” that we were living frankly wasn’t very good. We’re never going to have pre-COVID times days work like we did. It was great, we had fun, some of us didn’t. But that time is gone. We now have transformed to this world of work where, for the most part, we’re not going to be sitting in the same room. For the majority of us, we’re going to be separated by distance.

We’re not going back, we’re never going back, but we are going better.

What I want to look at is what is our role as leaders in making this time better.

Leaders can become more effective as they head back to work through these topics.

Leaders must focus on 4 P’s for effective leadership; passion, planning, personal philosophy, and personal connection.

How to Gain More Control

Is the COVID-19 crisis overwhelming you with the feeling that you’ve lost control? Right now, the thing we want most is control. We want control over our work, over our responses, and frankly to move about like we used to.
Before this crisis, I “thought” I was in control when it turns out, I actually wasn’t. I’m going to share with you my story about how I “thought” I was in control, and give you a road map that I’ve used since the beginning of this crisis to help get more control over your life.

2020 was going to be the best year of my life. And, I worked it Baby! I worked it like crazy. As a matter of fact, I worked it so hard, I started to feel sick. Then I discovered that I have a hyperthyroid.
What I had realized was that before I got sick, I “thought” I was in control, when actually I wasn’t. The truth is, I had zero control over my life.
With the help of my coach, I created a plan to get more control, and I’m going to share this with you. This plan begins by asking WHY you want to get in control in the first place and then diving deep into my 3 R process. RE-flect, RE-define, and RE-new.

Lead Like A Chief 3 Lessons from Navy Enlisted Leadership

Navy Chief Leadership: 3 Lessons From Navy’s Enlisted Leaders

If you ever meet a Navy veteran, ask them to tell you a story about their favorite Chief. You will learn how a Chief has influenced them to become the person they are today. When I reflect on my time in the service there is one Chief that I will always remember. He got to work before us, left work after us and maintained the aircraft right by our side. He was never too good to perform any job, no matter how dirty. He called us out on our nonsense, inspired us to be our best, and set the standard high for our team.
