Leading in isolation

Note: I wrote this yesterday before Boris Johnson went into intensive care.

With everything that’s happening in the world right now the pressure on many of our leaders is immense.

And as you might have experienced for yourself at times, being a leader can sometimes be a lonely place, even without isolation and quarantine.

It might be that you’re

> Damned if you do, damned if you don’t when it comes to making difficult decisions
> Feeling the pressure to show confidence even when there’s so much at stake
> Setting aside your personal worries or concerns to support and lead others who are counting on you
> In a position with few people you can truly confide in or call for support
> Seeing this taking it’s toll on your health, your relationships and ultimately your ability to perform at your best

Now more than ever before leaders need to not just cope and build resilience but really learn how to rise above the chaos and turbulence and connect with a deeper sense of power and resourcefulness.

If you or a colleague are feeling the pressure now and recognise you could benefit from taking a different perspective please get in touch….. I’m more than happy to have a chat and help where I can.
