There is so much information about Covid-19 coming from so many sources. There is very little about managing teams through such an unprecedented time of turmoil. Whether you are a CEO/Owner, Executive or Manager, your team members look to you for guidance.
Every situation is unique in so many ways. There is no magic formula. For most businesses, revenue has dried up. Expenses continue. The duration of disruption is unknown. And the recovery rate is uncertain. How does one manage in such circumstances, whether it is an organization, a department or a team?
The core principles for the best practices of change management still apply.
In normal times, when there is a change, the executives and managers can expect resistance. In normal times, the desired organizational outcome is known, and we manage a change process to get there. The big difference now, in these days of Covid-19, is that the executives and managers do not know the organizational outcome. Instead of trying to introduce dissonance, we are all living in a state of dissonance.
All managers, no matter what level of the organization, have Five Requirements that must be fulfilled to be effective. They apply, perhaps in different ways, but they are more important than ever.
