What do you do when you’re a leader and ambiguity steps in? Your team may freeze and stop performing because they don’t believe they have a path forward. Here are a few suggestions for getting people back on track.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Your responsibility or role as a mid-level manager is to be an integrator.
- When ambiguity steps in, we sometimes don’t believe we have a path forward.
- Humans like to live in clarity, consistency and safety, so in the absence of clarity, leaders need to create a path.
- Create clarity first and then re-direct. Give your team direction and focus. Re-direct on solutions, not problems. Re-direct from what is unknown to what is known. Don’t wait for a path; create it.
