Crises bring opportunity, and this pandemic may be no exception. Maybe in these strange times you'll have to take over a team or a project, make it work and, besides, all that through video calls!
If you are asked to lead a team of people or a project during the pandemic you may feel recognized and valued. That doesn't mean it will be easy. Leadership is different from a position. A place in your company can be earned for many reasons including merit, sacrifice and more. But leadership is different. You must earn it every day
We tell you how to do it with 3 skills and also through video calls
1. Have clear objectives
This is the most important thing if you have to lead a project or a team. Knowing where you want to go and with what means is the main thing. You will only design a good strategy when you are very specific with the objectives. And you will only lead if you have a strategy
2. Gathering the talents, not replacing them
Leadership is about adding talent, not about doing it all yourself. If you are unable to organize your time and that of others and if you cannot delegate work, then you have a problem with leadership. The great virtue of leadership is knowing how to put together good professional teams
3. Knowing how to listen to others
This is a very important key to leadership. If you know how to use the techniques of active listening and empathizing with others, you could lead better. Knowing the deepest desires of the team members will allow you to manage their talent in the best possible way.
