How to Navigate the “New Reality”

Leaders need to be prepared to communicate clearly about what the company needs, how the work can best get done, and why decisions are made, particularly when it comes to in-office vs. remote work post-pandemic.

Putting Organizations Back Together Again

Now that we can see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, it is time to rethink, rebuild, or even recreate company cultures that make people feel connected again.

Leadership for a New Era

COVID-19 has changed the game, and in the future, caring for employees’ well-being will become a significant management priority.

Leadership Practices for 2021

Leaders must shift their mindset and place people and relationships before projects and tasks.

Leaders Also Need Compassion and Self-Care

Self-care begins with you. The most important person to lead is yourself. When you invest in your own well-being, you inspire others around you to do the same.

Leading with Wisdom

Leadership literature is exploding with books and articles to help us become better leaders. At the same time, numerous leadership programs, institutes, centers, coaches, and consultants claim to develop more effective leaders. Annually, the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard measures public confidence in leadership with its National Leadership Index (NLI). It surveys Americans’ attitudes toward their leaders, including 13 of the country’s major sectors such as the military, religious, education, and business. In 2012, according to the NLI, “some 69 percent of Americans still believe we have a leadership crisis.”
