Leadership in the new normal
Change management is managing to make sure the desired behavioral outcomes would result and work towards. It is basically an organizational process aimed at helping employees to commit, understand, accept and embrace changes in their current business environment. “Change management” is necessary because it helps to minimize the impacts and effects of the changes occurring in your organization. It changes from having unintended and negative outcomes to increasing positive results.
Behavioral Interviewing Techniques
A behavioral interview is a technique used by many hiring managers to help evaluate a candidate’s future performance.
1. A bad hiring decision will cost you more than your bottom line.
2. You learn what you really need to know about the candidate.
3. Behavioral interviewing predicts future behavior—good or bad.
4. You avoid making the wrong decision based on a gut feeling.
When hiring for a position, we like to say “Wait for the great.” In other words, the cost of waiting to find the right person is far less than making an ill-informed hiring decision.

Leading in Times of Crisis
When faced with a crisis, most leaders are forced to think and behave in ways that feel unfamiliar. Whether it’s a technological, financial, natural, or health crisis — at work or in the community — crises demand that leaders take an emergency response plan and adapt it as new evidence and factors present themselves. 5 steps to manage well are : 1)Seek credible information.2)Use appropriate communication channels.3)Explain what your organization is doing …about the crisis.4)Be present, visible, and available. 5)Dedicate organizational resources for future crises. During a crisis, leaders who have built a personal, relational, and cultural foundation can then focus on the immediacy of the moment.
Leadership, Coaching, and the New Normal
The “New Normal.” This title is bandied about as if this is the first time in history the world has been rocked by change. Anyone who has been alive in the last 100 years knows differently. WW11, Sept.11, global terrorist attacks in cities, school shootings, the list goes on. All of these changed the way we live and work, how secure we feel about our lives and the safety of our families, but never did we say “the new normal”. It just is, or was, and life went on.
