Coping with Covid19 - focussing on opportunities instead of challenges, digital drives, blogs, some humour, and much more!

Dear Leaders,

#Covid19 is the biggest challenge leaders face today. And how we handle this challenge will decide our legacy. This means we each have the choice to script the right legacy. As Alan Cohen, author of Spirit Means Business: The Way to Prosper Wildly without Selling Your Soul writes in his book, “We are abundant in whatever we pay attention to. The first step to upgrading your abundance is to upgrade what you are paying attention to.” Hence, what we do now for collective good will become our legacy.

While the #lockdown has redefined ‘uncertainty’ in #VUCA, there is no denying that at this stage the future looks uncertain for almost everyone. As we all take the precautions prescribed by the governments and medical fraternity for the common good, it will help us to stay focussed on the larger goals of life at a holistic level. Health, Family/Relationships, Spirituality, Hobbies are all back in focus, thanks to the lockdown.

So, while we all collectively grapple with the challenge, let’s not forget that it also presents us with a priceless opportunity. An opportunity to go within.

For the optimists, the lockdown is an opportunity to emerge stronger at all level.

Maybe as we enter the 4th week of lockdown in India, it is time to move from co-rona (crying together) to coro-na (cry not) - a little play on the words used in Hindi.

Nourish the Team’s Soil for Soaring
Team coaching is potent process through which teams remember, restore and sustain their collective wisdom and strengths to deliver on the shared team purpose. Teams and the organisations they contribute to are all too often seduced by the task of things and our well-worn habits to react to daily requests and forget to focus on the day to day experience of teaming.

Teaming allows everyone to share the burden, seek and gain understanding for the work they are authored to produce and enthusiastically accept responsibility for and of being together. Teaming agreements are an essential component of a team’s success. By missing this vital consideration teams often fall into politics and drama and get stuck. Read full blog here..

COACHING TEAMS – Creating magic with the teams
Having ‘Individual Excellence’ and ‘Collective Brilliance’ at the same time amongst the top management team is a dream of every business Leader. The exciting fact is that it’s possible! We often see Business Unit heads / the top management team members / the functional heads in organisations display Individual Excellence (excellence of their respective teams included);

yet the ‘Collective Brilliance’, working seamlessly as a team, largely appear to be missing. At this level, the experiences show 2+2 adding to less than 4, though the business objective is to take it above 4! How a business could accomplish Individual Excellence and Collective Brilliance at the same time?

How would that impact their business performance and profits?

Coaching Teams provides a solution. This could be used effectively to take businesses to the next level. Team Coaching comes in different types, shapes and shades; For a context described above, a team coaching intervention inter-laced with individual coaching could bring about magic!
