When we think of Chaos, we think of everything here, there, everywhere, and all over the place.
Such is the place with Chaotic Leadership – we don’t know where we are headed, we barely know where we came from and we aren’t sure what’s next. From day to day, our priorities change leaving us confused, unsure, weak in confidence, worried about what is next, and most importantly frustrated with what we are doing.
The good news is there is a quick fix for chaotic leadership and it can be handled by anyone on your team.
Stop, take stock of what you and your team are working on, realign your priorities, push out the distractions, and get going.
This sounds very simply, but where people fail is in the “realignment of priorities” where the team might have 15 conflicting priorities and they only narrow it down to 14.
If you want to make a dent in chaotic leadership, you need to dig deep, you need to take that 15 to 5 to get your team back on track in what they are doing. Get them moving in the right direction once again, so then you can figure out how to raise it back up to 7 or 8.
