Over and over again, I see people struggle with time honored trials and tribulations: it seems like things are spinning out of control, there are too many deliverables, you have a teammate who clearly has it out for you, and son-of-a-gun, the priorities just shifted AGAIN.
What? Did you think you were the only person who experienced that?
And now… the world realizes it needs to social-distance en masse… introducing a whole new element of crazy to your life. Like you needed more.
During the past two months, I’ve witnessed some of the most level-headed folks I know begin to fray at the edges just. a. little. bit. And I’ve also noticed client team members gritting their teeth, dropping a few balls, and struggling to keep their teams and projects on track.
Performance is lagging a little. It was completely explainable at the end of March, but now… well, let’s just say, there is a lot of pressure to deliver.
Look, you are NOT crazy. But you might need to get a new perspective. One of the best ways to get the crazy out of your head and your head back into the game is to talk it out with someone. Hopefully a trusted comrade who has you and your team's best interests in mind.
So get back on track!
If a trusted comrade does not immediately come to mind, talk to me.
A little time opened up on my schedule and I’d like to help. I’m offering several hours a week to take quick no-charge coaching calls. It’s my small way of giving back.
