Economic slowdowns can be stressful. Your example and leadership can help others stay positive and confident during times of economic uncertainty.
Leaders can help their teams and colleagues stay happy, hopeful, and forward-thinking during economic downturns by:
Celebrating Others: Don’t let a stormy economy put a damper on your sunny disposition. We can help each other get through tough times together, just as we help each other succeed during fruitful times. Make a habit of acknowledging the achievements of those around you, no matter how small! Express gratitude at every opportunity. Let people know their time and effort are valued.
Keeping Everyone Connected: When we stay connected, we find new ways to adapt and make a difference! Today’s tech enables us to communicate with each other from almost anywhere. Apps, video conferencing, and other social tools can help your network stay up-to-speed with each other. You can also encourage others to devote time, digitally or personally, to their community.
Uniting Over Shared Goals: Common objectives can turn your team’s attention away from stressful external factors that are out of their control. Shared goals can help you and others instead refocus on realistic action and problem solving.
Sticking to a Plan: Don’t be afraid to address your recession concerns head-on. You may have a tried-and-true recession-response plan you refer to, or you may be trying a course of action for the first time. In general, a plan is a useful blueprint that will help everyone follow through on your shared goals.
Sharing Stories of Success: A motivating story goes a long way! If you know someone who has achieved success during uncertain times, share their experiences with others. Similarly, put a spotlight on success stories from within your own circle. If you have a mentor or someone you model yourself after, ask them to share stories of their own. Lift others up through inspiring stories of triumph over adversity!
