I was back in my home town in the week-end (again). A beautiful part of the world. I don’t think I appreciated how beautiful it was when I was growing up there. Having travelled to and lived in many places around the world, I still get a huge sense of comfort walking the paths (or beaches in this case) that I did as a child. Spend as much time in nature as you can - there is plenty of evidence that even looking at pictures of nature have a positive impact on wellbeing. Go on….. go for a walk!

As we work through the challenges of current times, don’t lose sight of your customers and ensure you are meeting their needs. After all, if you don’t, you no longer exist.

I am currently working with a team to help them identify their stakeholders/customers and ensure their focus in on the right ones. Also remember the “loudest are not always the most important”. We are using the model below to structure conversations. First segmenting stakeholders into providers of information/services and customers of services, those who make decisions/govern and those who have influence. The next step is prioritisation in each area and identifying those that are vital. (BTW - turns out the loudest aren’t the most vital for this team!)

If you would like some support to help our team re-focus on your customers, please get in touch.

I am working with a team right now who are facing change themselves and leading their teams through change at the same time. It's tough gig being a leader. Dealing with your own emotions and supporting others going through the same thing. Some great tips below on how you should “be” and what you should “do” (based on Korn Ferry, March 2020).

Leaders should be...

· Authentic

· Calm

· Confident and positive

· Courageous

· Empathetic

· Resilient (looking after yourself)

Leaders should do…

· Express clear vision

· Communicate

· Take action

· Face the truth

· Keep priorities simple

If you would like support to lead yourself and your teams through change, please get in touch.
