As businesses, we’re leading through unprecedented change right now. While most organizations were already experiencing a great deal of change, the current global situation requires us to rapidly adapt to new ways of connecting and working together. The way people managers support teams must also change.
First, remember that you, as a manager, are an employee first. Take care of yourself, so you can best support your team. You help your employees most by remaining calm and staying connected with them. You set the tone for your team. Although it may feel different, your role as a manager in change still requires you to communicate, liaise, advocate, manage resistance, and coach your employees.
We encourage you to take good care of yourself so you can continue to support your team. We’re working through unprecedented times, and your role as a leader of change is critical. Although this is an opportunity to adapt unlike any we have seen before, CLARC can still help you accomplish your goals.
