In the context of Covid19, we’ve taken the unusual step of deciding to re-issue each of the Thursday Thought series from 2019 (12 in total) in a slightly revised version.  Each post will consist of the original quotation (to do with leadership and self-reflection), followed by a short comment and a question designed to provoke thought.

#Week 12:

What am I doing to lead myself – today and every day?

#Week 11:

Everyone has the capacity to demonstrate leadership – from the kid in the playground, to the leader of a country.  If our behaviour and actions have the potential to influence those around us, we are demonstrating leadership.

Where can I observe leadership in action today (and what can I learn)?

#Week 9:

There is no doubt that 2020 has provided much challenge – and that the impact of this challenge will be felt into 2020/21 and onward.

In times of unexpected and difficult challenge, how do I demonstrate persistence and resilience in my leadership?

#Week 7:

One of the hallmarks of the Covid 19 crisis has been the ability of people to learn new ways of interacting via online tools – particularly in work environments.  It has taken days to accomplish what might normally take months – or even years.  As we start to transition out of the Covid Crisis, the challenge is likely to be finding ways to retain that ability to adapt and develop.

How will I ensure that I continue to develop and improve my skills?

#Week 6:

The Covid 19 crisis has provided an unexpected opportunity to think about what we do and how we do it.  As many organisations start the transition back to ‘normal’ (whatever ‘normal’ will be), it is a good time to think about how what we’ve learned can contribute to a more effective way of doing things in future.

How am I balancing effectiveness with efficiency at my organisation today?

#Week 5:

As we move through the Covid 19 crisis, it is even more important to take time to re-evaluate our vision and priorities.

Do my organisational vision and mission continue to be ‘fit for purpose’? How am I ensuring that I am focused on the right priorities?

Leadership is not just a position: it’s a personal quality and skill set. Each one of us has leadership opportunities within our roles and communities. 

What standards am I setting for myself, as a LEADER, today?
