Regression as a phenomenon comes from developmental psychology and relates to how people go back to a less mature stage when faced with pressure.
It is the most dangerous phase for teams, but it cannot be skipped.
It starts with changing the focus of your team from the short-term risks to your company’s bigger-picture contribution and longer-term opportunities. You change the question from, “How can we handle the crisis?” to, “How can we move out of the crisis?”
A crisis can be both a moment of glory and and a moment of failure for a leader. The people they work with will remember their actions and decisions, positive or negative, for years to come.
So, as you lead through a crisis, remember that each phase requires a different approach.
