6 Keys for Navigating Team Setbacks

  1. Be visible.

“Leadership is best transferred through example.”

2. Pause. Gain some perspective.

“The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence – it is to act with yesterday’s logic.” – Peter Drucker

3. Check on the individuals that make up your team.

4. Conduct a “no-fault autopsy”.

         Answer the critical question: “What led to this setback?”

5. Make the needed adjustments and provide accountability.

6. Refocus the team and move forward. 

“In war, as in life, it is often necessary, when some cherished scheme has failed, to take up the best alternative open, and if so, it is folly not to work for it with all your might.” – Winston Churchill
