???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).

My leaders are really struggling with maintaining optimism in chaos and they fall into below the line confusion
Jennifer Goddeau
01:24:00
Great question Beckah
Jennifer Miller
01:26:07
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?
Jennifer Goddeau
01:26:41
Yea Chicago!!
Francisco Lopez
01:33:50
finding what we can control is the key... and refocus our energies there [easier said than done... but that is the key]
Kristin Morris
01:36:24
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.
Kristin Morris
01:36:36
And then I have to listen to them.
Jennifer Goddeau
01:39:11
Great point Kristin, listening is key!!

Christa Davis
01:41:05
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.

Francisco Lopez
01:42:55
same here Christa. Well summarized. Listen and focus on what we can control.
melissa erickson
01:45:28
Excellent point. Thank you for that perspective
Dawn Zmecek
01:48:07
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.
Kristin Morris
01:50:13
@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.'
craig Haddock
01:50:27
Dawn I /we never want to say "that is not my job" but I don't want to take away from my real job.
craig Haddock
