We are in a lifespace now where work and home are blurred. Gone are the models of having defined space for work and family, time for tasks, and an ability to focus solely on work. Now children are asking for help with schoolwork or may be just bored, our spouse has a web conference call the same time you do, and you’re wondering if anyone let the dog out. As a leader the rules have changed and now, more than ever before, the emphasis needs to be on managing the work and leading the people.
Let’s focus on what others are dealing with in their lifespace, how you react sets the tone for the team. Empathy, understanding, and trust will create a culture where the people will align to the purpose so let’s forget about the 9-5 model and move towards a framework where the deliverable, the outcome, matters and allow people to flex the middle space so they can meet the end.
Take a look at this short video, Leadership@Home, and let’s think about ways to create a compassionate, connected community that can work effectively, live joyfully, and is engaged with all the people in their lifespace.
