LeaderSpace’s Richard Boston teamed up with Claire Davey at C-D Performance for a discussion around our 8 key recommendations. Each warrants a full discussion in its own right and each discussion includes a wealth of hints and tips. So, we’ve chopped up the conversation to enable you to choose your own path and focus. The content is hosted on LinkedIn but you do not need a LinkedIn account to access it.
- Introduction: a summary of the 8 recommendations and our rationale for offering them, particularly with some much other advice available
- Be mindful and make conscious choices: five steps to keep your wits about you and steer clear of the palpable panic that’s gripped many leaders and their organisations who are already making well-meaning but highly questionable decisions
- Manage your own and others’ well-being: the best practical tips we could find, plus insight into the ways different kinds of people will experience the coming weeks – and how things will change over time
- Use ‘virtual’ really, really well: we cover the nine essential ingredients for getting maximum value when bringing people together on video. We’re all already adapting quickly on this front, so this isn’t ‘Zoom for beginners’
- Do remote working really, really well: Three Core Disciplines for leadership and team performance, expanded and applied to the world of remote working
- Embrace and encourage creativity: four highly impactful and easy-to-apply techniques – one idea from one of these saved one organisation over £1m
- Get your house in order: how best to invest for payoffs in the short, medium and longer term
- Balance short-term and longer-term thinking: including managing those tensions with the help of a crisis management framework from Cranfield, and Three Horizon Thinking
- Go beyond your normal ‘borders’: including tips, benefits, mutually-sustainable virtual circles, and sources of inspiration
In Recommendation 4, when discussing clarity as key to working remotely, we offer a free chapter from Richard Boston’s book The Boss Factor. This includes the ‘7 Levels of Delegation’ also referenced in that recommendation.
