BUILD A CONNECTION

  • Team meetings should happen every day to keep everyone involved and engaged, and projects on track
  • Ensure you set up a regular time to meet with each member of your team. The first step to developing a connection is making the time
  • In this time of immense change, creating a space for the team to articulate their challenges is crucial if you are to address these problems. Try asking open questions:
    • “How is the current crisis affecting you?”
    • “What do you need to overcome the challenge we are currently facing?”
  • End meetings on a positive note; be optimistic and realistic

DEMONSTRATING PRESENCE

  • Set up your workstation to help you stay focused on the person you are meeting with. Look directly at the screen and as act as you would if you were sitting across from each other
  • Try to remove distractions from around you
  • Try not to interrupt the other person. Let them finish and respond with questions/comments that demonstrate you have been attentive
  • Over the coming weeks the people in your team will share with you a lot of important information. Try to write these down to help you refer to them. The best way to demonstrate presence is through addressing people’s narratives

Maximus Virtual Masterclass Series

In addition to the open thought leadership Maximus has created to assist during this period, we recognise that a number of leaders require a deeper and more concentrated level of support to shift mindsets and manage the new normal.

Maximus has developed a selection of virtual masterclass experiences focused on delivering the capabilities and mindsets leaders require at this time.
