Virtual leadership in a crisis – support for leaders

“Identify what you are feeling and where you are as a leader”

As leaders, we are like a contagion. How we show up will impact our teams.

#Leadingvirtually is no different. We might be #feelingpressure and dealing with the #crisisplanning one moment at a time. It is important to show up as calm and optimistic but also realistic.

If we don’t understand where we are it will be very hard to self-lead ourselves to something different.

Follow this three-step process:

·        Identify and acknowledge where you are

·        Set an intention and exercise your choice to move

·        Identify what you would rather be feeling and thinking

Identify what you are feeling and experiencing. Is it frustration, fear, anxiety, confusion, disbelief about what has happened? Acknowledge the #feelings without judging them.

Decide that you want and intend something different. Write down a few alternatives for instance, this is an #opportunity:

·        for my own and team growth or

·        to experience new connections and

·        I am not alone, I can get advice from others.

Whenever your thoughts and feelings migrate back, acknowledge them, don’t judge and #choosedifferently.

Please share what you have been feeling?
