Lockdown Lessons for Leaders

Lockdown changed so many things:

  • About how we live
  • How we work
  • Connections & communication
  • Wellbeing – what were thankful for – fear / perspective
  • Resilience

Have you looked back at those pictures from cities that were empty and streets that were bare? I know I have.  There were bits that I loved and bits that I didn’t.

There was a significant difference in how people viewed the lockdown. Some loved it. Some hated it. For some it was frightening, and for some it was delightful. Some missed people, while some enjoyed the space.

However over time those views change. This is an important lesson to remember.

However hard we think things are at the time, they will change. It’s important to look back and see how far you’ve come, what you’ve coped with and how you’ve managed. These are great ways to reflect and learn the lessons.
