The agile leader: Tips for keeping employees engaged, connected, and productive during disruption Dr. Summer Salomonsen Head of Cornerstone Studios How can your organization thrive during a global disruption? By keeping employees engaged, connected, and productive. Your teams are looking to your organization's leadership to provide stability, updates, and vision for a future that is uncertain. Organizations with the strongest leaders are in the best position to rally their workforce behind a shared vision—and pivot quickly as requirements change. Yet, given the unprecedented disruption we find ourselves in, our traditional leadership strategies are being challenged. Agile leaders must inspire productivity through new ways of working and additional leadership interventions. Here are some key ways to help you bring out the best in your workforce during this or any other time of great change: Prioritize face-to-face time (and yes, virtual counts) Acknowledge the disruption but don't let it dominate Increase the frequency of one on ones Flex your leadership style to meet the needs of your team Maintain a "directionally correct" vision Activate your middle managers – they are your change agents Maintain high levels of connectivity across teams Use the time to revisit back-burner items View constraints as productivity catalysts Lead toward something – not just away from something else D A I L Y W E E K L Y M O N T H L Y
