Great communication is key to leading through challenging times

How are people in your organisation doing? No, how are they really doing?

Not sure? Then you’ve got a communication issue you need to address.

Whether you’re still able to work together, you’re working remotely for the first time, or you normally work apart, everyone is experiencing uncertainty and change as never before.

Outwardly, people in your organisation may seem to be coping well, but there’s a good chance at least some of them are feeling unsettled and anxious.

If you’re in a position of leadership – whether that’s formally part of your role or not – taking the time to check in on people to make sure they’re doing OK is invaluable.

Communication is a two-way process, and listening is the most important and also most frequently overlooked aspect.

Actively gathering feedback, listening to it and acting on it will help to make the people around you happier, healthier and more productive.

Depending on the structure of your organisation and the adaptations you’ve made for the Covid-19 pandemic, you’ll need the right communication methods in place to foster a meaningful and authentic conversation with the people you lead.
