Leaders, I feel for you. It’s been a rough year. 

Ordinarily, there’s a ton of pressure on you to build teams, deliver on projects, and keep your people engaged. Now you have to do all that while dealing with the fallout of a global pandemic.

But, it’s not all doom and gloom. According to leadership coaches, Jan and Michelle Terkelsen, there’s a lot to embrace and relish in our changed work world if we know how to be resilient.

It starts with understanding who you are as a leader, and being responsible for self-growth and awareness. If you work on yourself and then pay attention to what your team needs, you’ll be set to tackle any challenge that comes your way.

In this jam-packed episode of People at Work, Jan and Michelle tag-team to share what they’re seeing on the front lines of leadership. They talk about ways leaders can practice self-care and growth, while engaging and caring for their people. 

If you’ve been wondering how you’re going to keep up with relentless change and uncertainty, this episode is for you. You may even find yourself thriving if you practice the clarity, kindness, and optimism that Jan and Michelle express.
