The novel coronavirus outbreak is the live example of business uncertainties. As you adopt the new normal, fresh challenges appear, and you must form strategies to overcome them.

In this article at strategy+business, Elizabeth Doty explains that in volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) situation, you must find agility to respond.

Lead Irrespective of Crises

The global pandemic made sure that employees are utmost for all organizations, and so is proactive communication with them. In the current scenario, organizations must conduct online stress management training for their staff. Help them cope with the negativity surrounding them. Follow these strategies to help your team adjust in a crisis situation:

Extend Constant Support

Since your interaction with the team is far more often than other leaders, consistency is the key to strengthen your team’s ability. Help them learn and nurture their ability to grow and get positive outcomes in the future.

Adopt a New Work Approach

Teams make better decisions and discover newer opportunities to collaborate in comparison with the views of a single leader. Seek their intervention to initiate collaborative decision-making and revise the process of work. Eliminate what does not work in your favor.

Re-evaluate and Realign Priorities

Your organization achieves stability only when your team contributes as a single unit. Instead of modifying the work timelines or planning, maintain a list of priorities that evolves often. Help your team achieve clarity over the changes under way. Let them establish a new concern to renegotiate commitments with other ongoing projects.

Learn to Improve

With an agile mindset, your team can learn from new experiences. They are the real judge of what is working in their favor or where they need to diversify. Follow the already defined metrics and objectives to analyze the team’s progress. Set a schedule to maintain regular check-ins and improve productivity.
