As we embark on a unique fall semester, I have spent time questioning the assumptions I hold about others’ behaviors and tendencies.
In a time when we have commuted by walking from bed to desk, it is time to remember leadership lessons we have been taught and re-examine ourselves.
Our future will be a mix of co-located and remote workers. Many meetings will be hybrid. How will we ensure a worthwhile and inclusive experience?
MOR Associates suggests a framework for enhancing our Virtual Presence. The 5As: Aware – Appear – Active – Articulate – Authentic.
I offer strategies to help make your leadership voice heard in the virtual workplace and build a more inclusive culture.
Own your experience and expertise. Know that you don’t talk, write, and think like other people. A good leader needs to be a good storyteller.
Stress can come from change and begins with how you respond. Find the amount of stress that maximizes performance without impacting your health.
Always be prepared, carefully plan, express gratitude, be realistic, discover triggers, and ask for help are ways to become a more patient leader.
Life sends us messages, and we must pay attention to those clues if we want to follow our dreams and finding purpose and connection.
