Control What You Can

Chaos and uncertainty make us want to shut down and become disengaged.

The idea of staying calm and focusing on what you can control keeps us engaged and aimed towards a possible solution.

Open For Help

Being open to help, setting your ego aside, is always a great idea.
Taking help from our seniors, our peers and most importantly, outsiders can work wonders to get our chaotic situation in order.
Outsiders provide us with a perspective we miss, being too close to the fire.

Act, Don't React

Acting or responding to a situation is always better than mindless reaction, which itself leads to further chaos.

Taking action, even if it is a small asserting of control, keeps us moving forward.

Inspired Positive Action

Taking inspired positive action, can make a chaotic situation disappear, and make us come out of the problem more powerful than we were before.

Concentrate on the Big Picture

In chaotic conditions, we are lost in urgent matters and forget the big picture.

Without a big picture, or a 'Why' to motivate us, and guide us in the dark, we can forever be lost in the jungle of chaos.

A CHAOTIC Way To Lead in CHAOS

The CHAOTIC Leadership Model is a set of principles that enable us to perform despite the chaos around us. The acronym stands for:

  • Control what you can
  • Honesty with yourself and others
  • Act, don’t react
  • Open yourself to help
  • Take charge of yourself
  • Inspire a positive difference
  • Concentrate on the bigger picture.

Take Charge Yourself

Sometimes the only person we can trust is ourselves.

Practicing self-discipline and self-direction makes us fit to lead, and can be achieved by:

  • Knowing oneself
  • Knowing your leadership style
  • Knowing your strengths and weaknesses.
