Hello from Austin TX!
Hello Austin.. Thanks for joining us David!
???Let's say, "My boss provides difficult news." I *optimistically* support the news and the new direction, openly. With whom am I able to express my concerns, privately? (My boss, my teammates, others).
God Bless You Brian!

Lol, Jennifer M. Too true sometimes.
My leaders are really struggling with maintaining optimism in chaos and they fall into below the line confusion
Great question Beckah
I'm an embedded performance consultant and talent coach. I don't make decisions but I am an influencer. I usually have weekly meetings with the director of our organization and she has now canceled all of my meetings. I'm really unsure of how to continue to create a great working environment when I don't know whats happening anymore. Our workforce is verbally disgruntled and is sharing it with our community and customer base. Do you have any advice?
finding what we can control is the key... and refocus our energies there [easier said than done... but that is the key]
Creating space is key. I give my team permission to tell me when they need help and to tell me when they need me to get out of their way.
And then I have to listen to them.
Great point Kristin, listening is key!!
Howdy from DFW :)
I'm listening from Orange County, CA and I am working with a team of six that have worked in the field for years. We are PR people whose daily work is in out in the field. We are having to learn to work from home and totally restructure. I agree with opening up the conversation for ideas from the team. We discuss the reality of what's going on and then turn to what we can control and where to focus our energies. Just working to keep everyone positive so we can still meet objectives.
same here Christa. Well summarized. Listen and focus on what we can control.
Excellent point. Thank you for that perspective
Excellent point regarding "that's not my job." I work in learning and development, and we are working to promote learning options to help managers who are now managing virtual teams. We are also reaching out to our HR team members to let them know that we would like to help in any way they might need us. It doesn't matter if it isn't part of our "normal" duties, as long as we are helping the company.
@Dawn Z...great example. i lead an L&D team and we just had 1/2 of our team start working side-by-side with their HR teammates working on employee COVID-19 cases. it's time to roll up our sleeves and get to work.'
Dawn I /we never want to say "that is not my job" but I don't want to take away from my real job.
See you Thursday
Loved the sense of community on our call today. Thank you for joining us
Hi Dawn! Good to have friends in the chat. I hope the Aleris family is well.
