"Without vision and values leadership is hollow. We are in troubles times and what we need is leaders that help us get above that."#HBS Professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter
Who do you think the stand out leaders have been around the world during the #COVID19 crisis?
It's highly likely they have struck a balance between addressing proactively and sensitively the current challenges whilst building a sense of hope for a better future.
As Kanter suggests in her quote above great leaders right now are responding in alignment with their deepest values AND maintaining their focus on a longer term vision 🔭.
She calls this leadership success principle "looking up". It is one of Kanter's six leadership success principles shared in this great TED talk: https://lnkd.in/gJYrrhb.
Leaders that "look up" 👆 remind & inspire others to do the same & to remember we always have a choice how to respond no matter what the circumstances.
The #COVID19 context is quite possibly the best time to make it clear to those around you what you stand for AND where you are going.
Don't miss the opportunity!
