Leading Through Crisis: External Domination

Entrepreneurs and Executives Can Learn To Lead Through Crisis

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has brought about a crisis unlike what many of us can remember. With the world changing in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), many find themselves lost and confused about how to move forward. The pressure falls to the shoulders of the leaders of our communities and businesses to find the best way forward. Core Success is highly equipped to help leaders and executives seeking guidance on how to lead through crisis.

The Problems That Prevent You From Leading At Your Best

In order to move forward and lead through crisis situations, you must first recognize things that are counter-intuitive to you leading well. During crisis situations, there are common problems that arise that prevent good leadership. Core Success aims to help executives and leaders to recognize these problems. Last time, we introduced the first of these problems – emotional entanglement. Now, we present the second challenge for executives and leaders to be aware of.

Problem #2: External Domination

The second problem for executives and leaders to be aware of is external domination. External domination is when, due to negative outside factors, your focus is turned outward, allowing those circumstances to be your guide. For example, you may find that the news, your competitors, and your clients are in an uproar. Your employees are also looking to you for the answers. You get negative tunnel vision, constrained by all the bad news “out there,” and your internal focus becomes externally directed.

Recognizing that this is a problem you have can help you refocus and direct your attention where it needs to be in order to lead. Core Success can help executives and leaders with this process.

Core Success Teaches Executives To Lead Through Crisis

During a crisis situation, you have little if any control over external circumstances. You always, however, have 100% control over how you view and respond to those circumstances. That is your seat of power. With Core Success Crisis Pivot Plan Steps, executives and leaders can take control of how they respond to the crisis of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
