Top Tips for Leaders – Take a ‘time out’

This week’s 2 minute video asks: How do leaders cope in a crisis? How do leaders cope when deadlines are looming and passing, when there is crisis all around them? There is chaos, poor communication, advisors coming at the leader with differing opinions which the leader has to make very difficult judgments upon. The answer may sound illogical, but leaders need to walk away, to take a ‘time out’. It could just be a couple of minutes. It could be hours. It could be half a day or even a full day, but leaders need to walk away. It will be a time to reflect, think, get the bigger, greater perspective and, only then, come back. Great leaders don’t work harder, they work smarter. Watch the video here

New YouTube Channel Launched

Today I launched my new YouTube channel. The idea is create a place to host videos for Top Tips for Leaders. Each video will be just 2 to 3 minutes long, and each will have a single focus.

The first video is called ‘Inspect, not expect’ and deals with how to keep control of delegated tasks/projects without having to be accused of micromanaging.

You can visit the channel’s first video here: https://youtu.be/V3COx03PDWw

I hope you enjoy it!
