When Things Speed Up, Leaders Should Slow Down

Found this is my reading and like it.

InfoLeadership development consultant Brad Lomenick suggests that when facing times of great intensity and pressure, leaders should:

  1. Always over-communicate.
  2. Be methodical and calm, not intense and short.
  3. List out priorities, so as to not be overwhelmed by the small things that seem to be incredibly urgent, but really aren’t.
  4. Seek out quiet moments for prayer, reflection and thinking. During times of pressure, that is when we need those quiet moments the most.
  5. Resist the urge to let things slide or just settle for something average because of the pressure to get it done. Keep your standards and levels of excellence at their highest—don’t compromise.
