Aren’t we all incredibly grateful the eye of the Coronavirus seems to be passing by! Before you go back to the office after the COVID-19 “safer at home” restrictions, consider how you would like to return:
- Are there things you have committed to do better as a leader?
- Are there things you have experienced during this season away that you know you need to improve?
- What are the things you will STOP doing?
- What are the things you will keep doing?
- What new things will you practice?
Something needs to change
Through this shelter at home season, work has likely been more complex and hurried, not less. As you reflect on going back to the office to work, are there things you’ve considered changing and priorities you would like to address? Perhaps you know there are things you would like to change about your leadership, workflow and leadership techniques.
But maybe an issue is not knowing how you’re doing as a leader. Is there a place to be able to assess your leadership, your style, your pace? Other than going to a conference (which is unlikely for a while), or heading back to school, is there a place online for clear assessment, growth and development?
Become a better leader? But how?
Between your final Zoom meetings this week as you are working from home, take time to invest in yourself. Kick the tires of your leadership capacity and blind spots before you take yourself back out on the track. If not, it could be that you are down the road 6 months in the same situations with no change.

Still learning and growing
I have used these principles for years, and even last week, invested time in a GiANT.tv “pathway” on delegation. The lack of delegation for me is something I know I need to leave behind when I go back to the office for work.
There are communication principles and strategies that I would love to share here, but trust me, as we go back in the pressure cooker of how to say what the new normal is, when and to whom will be critical. You can find insights like this at GiANT.tv.
You’re about to be back in the office. I am glad. But, are you ready?
