We find ourselves in turbulent times with the outbreak of Covid-19 (Corona virus) and it has been fascinating to watch how the UK has responded to the crisis.
I have a personal view that we are all leaders and it is how we choose to behave in these turbulent times that demonstrate the leadership skills we all have.
There are days where I feel we are dammed if we do and dammed if we don’t. The opinions of others across the world over social media and journalists are impacting the decisions that individuals make, which cements my belief we are all leaders and have leadership traits which many will choose to follow.
These are questions that are relevant now, in the future and questions I’ve asked in the past as part of reflection.
What lessons am I taking away by leading through crisis?
None of this is new, we just don’t consciously bring it to the forefront of our minds when we are busy.
What opportunities does crisis bring?
How is the current crisis affecting me & what am I doing about it?
All in all, I have a lot to be grateful for. My health which is my wealth, a family who love and support me even when I’m not firing off all cylinders and being my best self as well as a fabulous support community that I can pull on in times of crisis. I’m living life true to my family and company values and beliefs.
