Do your people understand the six stages of a crisis?
Do your leaders recognize the stage their people are in and do they react appropriately?
Are your leaders leading, or just hoping for the right outcomes?
In order to successfully lead people through and out of a crisis, first, we have to understand the 6 stages of the crisis. Based on her Navy experiences during the first and second Gulf Wars and 9-11, Commander Mary Kelly articulates the reactions of people in various stages of change, challenge, or crisis.
As effective leaders, we have to be able to help our people P.I.V.O.T. through the crisis, by renewing their sense of purpose, influencing and inspiring others to take the right action, assessing the volatility levels, seeing the opportunities, providing the right tools, techniques, and technology that allow people to succeed. Then we can apply Mary’s seven leadership reminders, using the acronym C.L.A.M.P.E.R. so that we are providing the right response to the right people at the right time to achieve the right outcomes.
The economy is constantly changing, and external shocks affect our business. Tax increases, inflation, regulatory changes, supply chain disruptions, cyber hacking and increased competition, changes how we run our businesses. Great leaders need to respond to the current economic environment, market shifts, and customers’ needs.
