Presenter: John Bates
SYNCHRONIZE YOUR WATCH WITH OTHER LEADERS FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE
Together we are better. I will begin these calls with a couple of things I think are worth thinking about as leaders. Ideas about how to be a better leader in a virtual environment, insights from clients in China who are beginning to emerge again, and more.
Then, we will check in with people on the call and synthesize various perspectives. Some of these people will be invited guests who will share a useful point of view with us, and we'd also like to hear from you, time permitting.
I promise that if you join us you will leave with valuable food for thought, suggestions and guidance.
And, don't underestimate the fact that your attendance is a great contribution to all.
WHAT DOES LEADERSHIP LOOK LIKE NOW?
After selfishly freaking out for a while about how this whole thing is going to affect me I finally took Snoop's advice: Don't be Nervous, Be at Their Service and I started to think about what I have to offer that could be useful to you, and how I can share it.
I realized that I've been consulting and coaching clients who were on the cutting edge of this problem in China already. (If you've been through that and would be willing to talk with me about it I'd highly value the chance to hear from you!) And I saw that I have some experience and some things to share and offer that I think will be of value.
I'VE BEEN HEARING FROM LEADERS ALL OVER
I've been getting a number of requests from clients and others about what to do now that "social distancing" is absolutely necessary and how to deal with the often massive disruptions that novel Coronavirus, or SARS-CoV-2, is causing.
"How can I manage the uncertainty, keep people productive and calm my team?"
"How do I lead good virtual meetings?"
"How do I hold my team together now that we are all working from home?"
It's definitely an anxious time for everyone and I'd very much like to be with you, talk with you, hear about the top 3 things that are keeping you up at night and offer some suggestions, thoughts and guidance you might find useful. Because I work with clients all over the world, some of whom are in China - or stuck somewhere that is not home outside of China - I can give you some of their experience and insight, as well. This will be a zoom event. If you can join with video that is preferred, but I'd love to have you there, either way. 🙂
