HR360: Leaders it is Time to Shine, Literally

Hawaii Business Magazine, January 13, 2020

Face it: 2020 was devastating. You ditched your business plans, shifted performance goals, and raised spirits for your employees through social media videos (like how to make a pizza). It’s been tough to be a leader.

2020 is behind you. What kind of leader will you be in 2021?

Will you ground and stabilize your team? Will you be the light at the end of a tunnel, project sunny optimism? Honestly, 2021 needs you to be both… grounding to endure the challenges and illuminating to uplift spirits.

Will it be hard? Sometimes. Will it be worth it? Absolutely.

Find the opportunities waiting for you in 2021 with three practices:

  1. Ground with strategy: Gather your team and carve out solid strategic goals. Motivate and drive purpose with a clear plan of action. Do it virtually and do it well. That leads us to #2. 
  2. Get the most out of your meetings, don’t wing it: 
    • Get smart about your virtual meeting tools to get results. Speed up team innovation with “breakout rooms.” Conduct pulse surveys with “polling.” Hit record to create a digital artifact. Document feedback by saving the chat log.
    • Collaborate synchronously and asynchronously with interactive whiteboards. (And, we don’t mean annotating on screen). Imagine post-its filled with brilliant ideas flying around your screen and gain buy-in faster. Try Mural.coMiro.comGoogle Jamboards.
    • Use a producer (we’re very serious about this). TH!NK producers troubleshoot tech issues and ensure a smooth meeting.
  3. Connect for fun: Try our favorite virtual team activities: escape room challenge, Maui Ku‘ia Estate chocolate tasting, or game night. 

With over 20 years of facilitation experience, let us help you work better together…virtually.
