It’s the end of the second quarter of the year. Have you accomplished what you planned for the first half of the year? Most likely not.
This has been one of the most unusual 6 months most of us could have ever imagined.
It’s time to step back, evaluate where you are, consider how our world has shifted, and make specific plans for the months ahead.
Don’t get overwhelmed. Knowing where you want to head and accomplishing small incremental steps is what will make the most significant progress.
- Am I leading my virtual team the way I want to? What changes do I need to make?
- Am I aware of the biases I hold? How am I working to bring diversity and unity to my team?
- Am I developing my virtual team well? What steps do I need to take to ensure my team keeps pulling together?
- Am I coaching my team members well? Are we talking about successes and challenges, strengths and weaknesses, planning for the rest of the year?
Set goals for yourself and work with each team member to set their goals for the next 3 months using this simple formula.
And remember, don’t set too many goals. Better to have 3 or 4 meaningful goals that create focus, than a long list of hopeful items that dilute your efforts.
In our effort to support you during this unusual time of COVID-19, we have offered these #Leadwell Virtually tips over the past couple of months. We will be phasing these tips out at the end of June. You can look back on all of the tips on our #Leadwell Knowledgebase – Leading Well Virtually.
Look forward to our next series of tips on shaping your evolving culture starting this summer.
