“I hereby give you permission to pause – for whatever reason, whenever you feel like it, as often as you like.” ~ Rob Poynton
This week my focus has been on crisis leadership around Covid-19 response, focussing on leadership behaviours. Yesterday’s post: “Who do you call before making a tough decision?” contained my instinctive offer to give space to leaders to sound out their thinking with me before making the often tough decisions needed at this time.
For leaders needing to make a decision at this or any other time, consider taking a pause before deciding. In that pause, again I encourage you to speak with someone independent who you can sound out your thoughts with and who comes with one sole agenda, to support you.
