I’ve been coaching a number of different leaders in the last week and there is a recurring theme. I think this is going to really help you.

I want you to imagine that today is your first day in the job.

All of us are trying to grapple with what’s going on in the world right now.

It is a time that we could never have imagined before and some of us are holding on like an emotional attachment to previous investments, previous decisions and previous strategy, it’s gone.

I encourage you, what would you do differently if you were starting at work today?

In your current role!

What would you do differently if you were starting at work today?

You’d be looking for data, you would have no emotional attachment to investments to favourite projects, to marketing, to key customers.

You would be thinking, what is it that we need to do from today to survive moving forward?

So I want you to think right now, if this was your first day in the job, what would you be doing differently? Try and have that mindset every single day for the next week, and the next month. Thank you.

If you are a leader, and would really appreciate talking to Mark confidentially (as a sounding board, fresh perspective, to see new opportunities), for free, book a 30 or 60 minute call here.
