Tomorrow, you can get coaching tips while you work from home: The Good Leadership Wednesday Webinar topic: Leading Through Change and Loss.

Now is not the time to pull back on supporting, nurturing, and inspiring your leaders.

Tomorrow is Wednesday, March 25, 2020 – the first day of our Wednesday Webinar series to help leaders grow and stay positive while being forced to work through social isolation.

There are two ways to tune-in at 9:00 AM CST, Wednesday, March 25, 2020:

We’re doing our public service by making the Good Leadership tools and coaching models available via these Wednesday Webinars. We think it’s important our leaders are growing together – especially as we work through the dark noise of the Coronavirus scare.

Objectives – finding the ROI on your time

The objectives for tomorrow’s webinar came directly from conversations with our clients over the past week:

1. Keep yourself and colleagues engaged and feeling positive

2. Maintain acceptable levels of productivity

3. Help people grow as leaders while isolated: either stuck working from home, or stuck at the office

Episode #1: Leading Through Change and Loss – Helping people grow while working in isolation and remaining focused on high-value activities that will produce tangible ROI for your time.

We will be sharing the coaching tools, models, and tips from our highest intensity coaching in a 50-minute webinar. You can grow as a leader from your sofa at home.

Context: Reactions of anger, frustration, and fear are partly caused by an assault on our values. The restrictions imposed by the President and our Governors makes us feel ornery because:

  • We’ve all been raised on the ideas of freedom, independence, and choice
  • The “work from home” mandate is hard because “home” is confining, and also distracting
  • Cancellation of social outlets is even harder – with gyms, restaurants, bars, and sports on TV cancelled. Where do we go, what do we do when we are done “working?”
  • Cancelling Spring Break feels like another gut punch

Goodness = thriving together

When we are calm, we realize the social isolation requests are reasonable shared commitments intended to help us all thrive together. We believe we are helping one another. But it’s also exhausting.

These Wednesday Webinars will help good leaders find new energy, and new ways ensure people in the workplace are thriving together. In some situations, these webinars are a bridge when the “workplace” includes a divide between on-site and at-home colleagues.

What to expect

The webinar will last about 50 minutes and here are the insights we’ll be covering:

Change and Loss Curve – you will learn how to manage the emotional roller coaster you and your colleagues are experiencing

Head – Heart – Hands Model – you will learn strategies for creating focus, positivity, and hope during change

The Head – Heart – Hands Model is essential for preserving morale and maintaining productivity through the COVID-19 work-from-home mandate.

Wednesday Webinars are building on the momentum from the Good Leadership Breakfast on Facebook Live last Friday.

Timely, Actionable Advice – tested last week by good leaders, who are still producing great results

  • Seek out and release fear
  • Set weekly goals
  • Follow-up to encourage accountability and growth
  • Negotiate new shared commitments

Last Friday, our team powered through the chaos and confusion to produce the Good Leadership Breakfast via Facebook Live broadcast. The speaker, NBA/WNBA executive John Thomas, was practical and inspiring. You can watch the full video here.
