Lockdown Leadership

Lockdown Leadership

Published 07 Apr 2020 by Sean Sullivan in Marketing

Sean Sullivan, Associate Media Consultant at The MediaShop

An executive coach I eagerly follow, Erik Kruger, penned the term “Lockdown Leadership”.

In an industry where team cohesion is vital to business continuity, his highly pertinent article drives home some key ideas on leading a team through a lockdown which has been introduced in several places across the world as a drastic measure against the spread of Covid-19. This has forced many leaders and teams into a position they have never been in before – having to work remotely.

Fortunately, there are some easy parts to this. For example it doesn’t take a massive amount of brainpower to install Microsoft Teams across all devices for your team and to start communicating through this channel immediately.
