I’ve been hearing from some pretty angry leaders at how their bosses are not being flexible enough, not using video technology to connect, not being real (meaning vulnerable), not making tough decisions, not dealing with people who are not adapting, and who only contact them when they want something from them.
It can be hard to know what to say and not to say in difficult times and sensitive situations. I just attended the Crisis Response Training: Caring for your #Team from Mental Health Commission of Canada. Here is the ONE page simple assessment tool using the mental health continuum and a 3 step A.I.R. process to engage your team. Try using this as a discussion aid at your next team meeting and ask people “where are you, what are your positive and negative coping mechanisms, how can we support each other, and what do you need from me?” Usually I say “leaders go last” but in this case lead the way being REAL … that means the inside voice of your true experience comes out.
