In this special .5 episode, I share my thoughts about the unique and challenging times we are currently facing due to the coronavirus pandemic. This is not just a business problem, it’s a global, human-being problem, the likes of which none of us has ever seen or dealt with before. In other words, there isn’t a great playbook out there for us to follow, but there will certainly be great lessons to learn.
As Leaders, it’s our job to be helpful to others, particularly when things are scary, confusing and unknown, as they are today. Whenever I face challenges that I’m unsure about, I always turn first to Dan Sullivan, the Founder of The Strategic Coach Program, because I’ve found that he always delivers something of value that helps improve my thinking and response to whatever the issue might be. And so, as part of my process for improving my understanding of, and thinking about, the impact of this virus on me as a Leader, and on the people who count on me, I turned to Dan once again and found “The Scary Times Success Manual,” which he wrote in response to the massive fear that the tragedy of 9/11 produced.
In this podcast, I share the ten points Dan outlined in his manual because it seemed to me that he nailed it in a better way than I could have. It is my hope that you find value in his thinking as well and that it positively impacts you as a Leader, especially in a time like this, when being the Leader – leading through largely unchartered waters – can be a lonely and confusing place to be.
