Beware of switching lanes in turbulent environments

Leaders and members should be wary of adding more change to a rapidly changing situation.

In a turbulent environment with intense volatility, uncertainty, workload, and urgency, it’s important for both leaders and members to stay in their respective lanes and maintain the expected flow of information. In these settings, things are changing so fast that by the time an individual switches back to their assigned tasks, they’ve lost situation awareness and contributed to the chaos and confusion.

Don't stress too much about things like “writer's block.” If you’re looking at a blank piece of paper and nothing comes to you, then go do something else.

Writer’s block is just a symptom of feeling like you have nothing to say, combined with the rather weird idea that you should feel the need to say something. If you have something to say, then say it. If not, enjoy the silence while it lasts. The noise will return soon enough.

Ignore Everybody

As you navigate in your organization and the community around it, you need to know the resources that are available to help you.

There is usually someone around you who knows how to do almost anything in your organization. Ensure you make time to also hang around these people.

Once you know what elements of the offer you would like to change, you need to decide which parts you are going to press and how you will do it.

If you are dealing with an intermediary, such as an HR administrator or a recruiter, remember not only to make requests but also to ask questions, give information, and share ideas to make the job more palatable.

Marketers are beginning to embrace newer trends, especially in the digital space. One method is podcasts. In 2017, the podcast ad revenue was $314 million.

Since podcasts consist of audio, the listeners tend to trust and rely on every word. Therefore, advertisers can use podcasts to reach more people.
