We’re living in unprecedented times. With non-essential businesses closed and many people working from home, the world of work looks very different than it did three months ago.

The demands on folks working from home are extensive. Besides experiencing anxiety about the well-being of their family, friends, and community, team members are juggling multiple requirements that are new, different, and exhausting.

To lead effectively under normal circumstances is not easy. To do so under these circumstances is much more demanding.

A great practice for all leaders to embrace is to conduct a regular audit of their leadership efforts and impact.

A leadership audit helps leaders to:

  • Plan their weeks better to engage in higher value tasks and strategic planning that moves the business forward
  • Monitor important reoccurring tasks – financial review, department review, culture review, strategic planning
  • Identify things that you can delegate to qualified team leaders and team members
  • Treat others with dignity and respect in every interaction, whether things are going smoothly or not

In today’s three minute episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I describe exactly how leaders can conduct a leadership audit and what to look for when analyzing your data.

This is episode eighty-four of my Culture Leadership Charge series. Each episode is a 3-4 minute video that describes proven culture leadership and servant leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, companies – and even homes and neighborhoods.

You’ll find my Culture Leadership Charge episodes and more on my YouTube and my iTunes channels. If you like what you see or hear, please subscribe!
