ITV 124 | Lockdown Leadership: 5 Themes That Shine {Theme 4: Clarity}

LWGAD Podcast Series Theme 4 Clarity

Fear hung in the room. It was a dark, sticky tension that no one seemed to want to address.

The entire organization was back at work, after many months at home. This was the moment that many had been waiting for — a return to normal, a breath of certainty in the midst of the global craze.

Yet, here they were, at work. And scared.

They had just heard through the grapevine that a colleague on the third floor was diagnosed with COVD-19…10 days ago.

Unanswered questions spiraled downward — why had they not heard until now? Why had leadership not told them? Who else was sicK? Would they get sick? Were their families safe?

Two weeks later, they were working from home again, but this time there was no levity in their hearts and certainly very little desire to go back into the office any time soon.

If their leadership was not going to be forthright—to provide clarity even when it was difficult—there was very little hope of thriving at home or when back together.


In the midst of a world of uncertainty, the best leaders are still thriving. So how are they doing it??

That’s what the series is about.

Murray Guest is a world renowned leadership coach and consultant, and in this episode we get to chat about something that he is not only excited about but has seen of the best leaders in the world.

We’re talking about clarity.

So far in this series, we’ve delved into stories and strategies from leaders who practice grace and kindness, who choose to communicate well, and who prioritize individualization

Today, as we get into the role of leadership clarity, you will see just how much influence you get to have and how much hope and peace you get to bring just by providing even BORING levels of clarity in your team.

We define it, share some stories, pass on the best practices we’ve seen and even leave you with a couple ways to practice it in your own role as a leader.

So, watch+listen below or catch this EPISODE 124 on iTunes, YouTube, GooglePlay, Stitcher or Spotify.
