When the Going Gets Tough


The Coates Perspective for May 23, 2013
“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
 
Leading in Tough Times

In my many years of leadership consulting I’ve encountered good times and tough times. Often, circumstances like a struggling economy or having to deal with a less than committed customer have been out of my control.

Whether serving in the Army or working as a businessman this saying always rang true:“When the going gets tough the tough get going.”So, what are you to do when you face tough times?

The Eyes of a Focused Leader

I am savvy enough to know that the marketplace is unpredictable at times, filled with ups and downs. Sometimes, in order to go further, one needs to go backward in order to gain a clearer perspective.

Staying on Message

There is a term called “white noise” which describes the way competitive noisy frequencies compete for our focused attention. It is possible to hear so many good thoughts, at the same time, which can dilute our hearing. The danger to an organization is that the urgent noises can replace the important ones.

The key challenge for the leader is to stay on message, in spite of the noise all around. How is it best done?
