We find ourselves in a time of unprecedented uncertainty right now. Not only are we daily learning new strategies to face the COVID-19 coronavirus itself, but we are simultaneously learning how to adapt to a new normal, where so much of what was familiar to us–what we thought was a given–has been taken from us.
It’s only natural to feel feelings of fear, anxiety, worry, sadness–even anger–right now. You can be sure that your team members are feeling these feelings. We, as leaders, need to give them–and ourselves–permission to feel these feelings, but we must also recognize that these are not the feelings that will propel us forward. We need creativity, resourcefulness, and optimism to move forward. In other words, we need a state change. State Before Strategy.
How do you cultivate a state of certainty when you are surrounded by uncertainty? Watch the video above as Shawn Ellis, resilience coach, motivational speaker, and founder of The Speakers Group, shares three steps to do just that. HINT: You won’t find certainty in your circumstances.
Once you help your team members get back to an empowered state of certainty, then it’s time to equip them with new strategies to rise up in this new normal. How do you sell? How do you communicate? How do you serve your customers? How do you lead?
You don’t have to have all the answers, and you don’t have to face this challenge alone. Here at The Speakers Group, we have an outstanding line-up of thought leaders and subject matter experts ready to support you and your team virtually (since we can’t come together in person at the moment)–through one-off solo sessions or through a “virtual summit” featuring multiple speakers.
It’s in times like this that we need that we need an injection of wisdom, expertise, and inspiration to lift our spirits and help us develop new skills for resilience and success. We’re here for you.
