Don't you wish we could have been warned?

Hey bosses and managers, talk to me! Tell me what you know. How is the company coping? 

Okay, I get it. The world was warned, but we didn't have time to pay attention. At work were moving fast to keep up, to raise the bar, to capture the market, and learn to lead.

Then the pandemic happened. And everything changed. 

If we kept our job, we moved home to work. The business closed to customers. We were furloughed. Then we were laid off. Unemployment was available, but no more health care.

I had a supervisor once tell me I was averse to changed, so I worked hard to accept, embrace, and create change. But under my breath I whispered “Change is good, you go first”.

Change is inevitable, but this is ridiculous.

What I want from my bosses, if I still have them, and from those I will have once I get a job.

  • Communicate. What do you know, what do you not? Invite me into the strategies for the future.
  •  Listen. Hear my ideas, concerns, and accomplishments.
  •  Trust. I am committed to this work, even though is feels a bit shaky right now. I can do a good job, not because you check up on me, but because I want to.
  •  Let me help. I am smart. My experience shows that. I am close the people we serve. I’m out there volunteering, gathering food for the hungry, motivating friends and colleagues on Zoom and more. I must contribute. Please let me.

Leaders need and deserve professional development. High potential managers and supervisors will stay with your organization if you provide it for them. They will leave if you do not. Small companies may not have the training funds to allocate for leadership development. There are plenty of options you can buy off the shelf, but will they fit the needs of your unique organization? Our consulting services can design a program that fits your vision and goals.
