Ep. 86, Tips On Leading During Times of Crisis

Host & creator, natalie viglione

Leadership isn't necessarily found in destruction, it is found in disruption. - Kris Plachy

In times of crisis, people that have to lead must face and manage things that they never have before. Now is a time we are seeing this more and more every day. Inside this episode, Natalie Viglione, host, speaks with guest, Kris Plachy, about what it really means to be a leader. 

Here are some of the great takeaways from this episode:

  • How overcompensating with power and authority is not leading with authenticity 
  • Defining what leadership truly means 
  • Why it’s okay to feel fatigued, pooped, wiped, and done
  • Why it’s imperative to DEprogram and reform yourself to become a true leader especially during a crisis 
  • The most solid anchor is clarity and intention 
  • Why there is a huge difference between being kind to ourselves versus hiding and avoiding the work that’s necessary to get done
  • Why communication is essential as a leader because people can’t read your mind
