Questions that Need Answering Post-2020
In the long-term care industry, just as in many other industries, the world of leadership, talent, and culture look different in a post-2020 world.
Not a post-COVID world, after all, viral plagues and pandemics have rocked the world before in human history, but the world after 2020. This world is going to present five clear and distinct challenges that many leaders may not be prepared to address based on lessons learned and integrated pre-2020.
Leadership that Needs Doing Post-2020
The type of leadership in long term care in a post-2020 world is leadership that requires intention, clarity, candor, courage, and the willingness to pivot to new opportunities ruthlessly on a dime.
This type of leadership is not new.
However, in the space of healthcare overall, and long-term care, in particular, that type of leadership typically takes time to develop, rather than moving into the world and the culture of facilities, associations, and corporate structures, quickly.
So, here are some questions to ask that will encourage leaders to look closer at their approach to leadership, culture, and talent in their organizations and facilities, in a post-2020 world.
Top 5 Questions for Leadership Post-2020
Here are the top 5 questions for leadership in a post-2020 world:
- What intentional acts does the leader need to engage in, to develop as a leader, post-2020?
- What does thinking, speaking, and acting with clarity do for organizational culture, post-2020?
- What is the role of honesty—or candor—in leadership culture in a post-2020 leadership environment?
- What impact does acting, speaking, and listening with the courage to the team, the culture, and the leadership has in a post-2020 environment?
- What does the willingness to pivot, quickly and ruthlessly, to a new opportunity in a new space, look like in a post-2020 world?
Asking, and answering, these five questions with self-reflection and self-awareness, can pivot any leader in the long-term care industry, at any level, toward greater outcomes for their talent, their culture, and their team.
