Are you having trouble finding your leadership groove in this post-pandemic reality you find yourself in? Is collaboration extra challenging now that most things are done virtually? Are you encountering too many trust issues among your team members? Are you frustrated with how your virtual meetings run because you suspect that participants are not paying attention? How do you handle all the issues leaking from your staff’s personal lives into the workplace?
Welcome to the new normal, where virtual is the new face of work. As a leader, your competency should now include being able to lead in a virtual environment. Gone are the days where you can grab a quick but productive face-to-face chat with colleagues in the hallway. You now have to be more creative with how to interact and bond with your teammates. Gone is the safety net that informal communications can provide and you find that even your smallest mistakes get magnified disproportionately.
