Areas of Focus

5 Leadership Behaviors to understand and apply

Ensure Safety

When unexpected change occurs we often experience cognitive dissonance. Leaders need to behave in ways that help people feel safe  staying calm and focused.

Communicate the Known

Let others know that we don’t have all of the
information but we are still able to communicate what we do know.

Identify what is NOT Changing

Identify what’s not changing can be very helpful as people attempt to orient themselves and focus on a clear direction or path forward.

Describe Priorities & Specify Behaviors

Without a sense of priority individuals are not working in concert, or pulling in the same direction which is critical in times of unexpected change or crisis.

Provide Resources and Express Gratitude

Identify and create access to resources which may be needed and recognize those who have provided assistance to others and express gratitude for their efforts.
