INSIGHTS FROM ALLI
1. Your mindset will make or break you (especially in 2020)
So many leaders discount the importance of mindset in leadership. 2020 has only amplified leaders with helpful or not-helpful mindsets. As a consultant, Alli has seen that leaders with pessimistic mindsets have really struggled this year, and leaders with positive mindsets have survived and thrived.
2. As a content creator, empathy and feedback are critical
In 2020 and 2021, people only have time for content that is helpful and relevant right now. So, as you write, it is more important than ever to empathize with your audience. If you hit the mark of what your audience needs, your content will be well-received. If you miss, it will fall completely flat.
3. Your staff should have a healthy balance of slow adopters and cheerleaders
There are 3 types of people that you are surrounded by as a leader: Naysayers, cheerleaders and slow adopters. When you are building your staff, include slow adopters and cheerleaders. When recruiting a board, find slow adopters only. You don’t need naysayers anywhere in your organization.
