10 tips for surviving coronavirus (that don’t involve washing your hands)

Here are some tips for getting through this week and beyond.

Turn downtime into up-skill time

How we can help:

Solution: A journey to a leadership pipeline
Electric utilities company leverages virtual solution to retain top talent.

Solution: Accelerating development with a performance culture
Global oil and gas organization accelerates growth using feedback.

What we're hearing:

“This is an opportune time to train and develop. With our people at home, and business slowing down, it is actually a great time for our people to upskill.”

Our take:

Nobody wants to do stand-alone virtual learning. Your leaders should be practicing decision-making within your business model and how to better lead their remote teams in your culture and given your strategy.

Protect your people and your powerful alignment off-sites

How we can help:

Solution: Accelerating leadership alignment
Financial services firm aligns 40,000 leaders.

Solution: Cascading a leadership framework
Oil services organization cascades leadership vision to 5,000 managers.

Solution: Leader development at scale
Leading technology firm develops 8,000 managers in 24-hours.

What we're hearing:

“Our people need to lead and think differently now. How will I get our leaders aligned and executing fast if we cancel the offsite?”

Our take:

Until safety is certain, do cancel flights and hotels.  But keep the meetings and run them virtually instead. Consider broadening the virtual participation to thousands. They will hear directly from top leadership and feel involved in the thinking and immediate actions.

Prepare leaders to execute in a downturn

How we can help:

Solution: Strategy alignment in preparation for a downturn
Medical Device Manufacturer equips leaders to thrive in possible recession.

Solution: Accelerating client business results
American Health Care Company develops salespeople and sales managers.

What we're hearing:

Are your leaders ready to lead in a downturn? How is their recession readiness? Will they be ready to adjust when we are coming out of a slowdown?

Our take:

Doubling down on leaders readiness and helping your leaders articulate and own their mindset is at the core of their behaviors and the environment they are creating for their people to do their best work (or not).

Build your leadership culture and mindsets

How we can help:

Solution: Multipliers: elevating the leadership mindset
Niche software provider shifts to become more agile.

Solution: The people side of agile transformation
American Financial Services Corporation becomes more agile and customer-centric.

Solution: Leader as coach
A CPG company improves customer-centricity and decision-making.

What we're seeing:

Leadership culture matters even more today and mindsets are the driving force.

Our take:

The highest performing people and teams in athletics and the military have a practice-to-performance ratio of 95% practice to 5% performance. Are your leaders practicing?
