Being agile means being flexible, active and adaptable, especially in times of change and insecurity.
Above all, digitalisation and how we deal with it can create good things and new things and rapid change, but also insecurity.
Digitalisation is perhaps the fastest revolution in human history and has fundamentally changed our world in recent years.
The speed made possible by digitalisation influences and changes the way people deal with one another
and also our expectations of one another. It is expected that we all react in an agile fast manner, much faster than ever before.
Furthermore, digitalisation has also changed some demands on you and your leadership as a Lead Wolf.
But how do you lead with agility? In this episode I´ll tell you my four best tips.
When you become a leader for the first time and get responsibility for employees, then suddenly a lot changes in your professional life. Until yesterday you were a specialist, as of today, also formally, you
are a leader.
I remember the moment when I was promoted into my first leadership role. Until yesterday I was Junior Brand Manager with 20 colleagues in an open-space office and a great boss as a safety net. As of today I am Brand Manager with responsibility for 2 national brands, 6 employees and € 280 million turnover. I felt proud because I made that step. And I felt insecure because I did not really know what was ahead and how it all worked.
Was this experience similar to you when you got promoted to be a first-time leader? What did you feel when you first became one? Or do you have this wonderful career step just ahead of you? I was fortunate enough to work in a company where I was allowed to learn. In my first year as Lead Wolf we were successful. Our sales grew faster than the market, our brand strength increased, and my employees performed and developed very well. I apparently did a lot of things right, but I also made some major mistakes. And that´s a good thing, because then you grow.
How do you do that now, lead for the first time? In this episode I´ll tell you my five best tips.
Wenn Du als Leitwölfin oder Leitwolf ein Team oder eine ganze Firma führst, dann willst Du Erfolg und Spaß. Dazu musst Du täglich Entscheidungen treffen und von Anderen treffen lassen. Wenn Du Entscheidungen triffst, willst Du natürlich immer eine gute, möglichst die beste Entscheidung treffen. Aber wir sind nun mal alle Menschen, und Menschen machen Fehler.

Besonders im Zusammenhang mit Entscheidungen haben manche Führungskräfte Angst, Angst vor Fehlern, Angst davor, die Erwartungen Anderer zu enttäuschen. Als gute Leitwölfin und als guter Leitwolf hast Du auch Angst. Du lässt Dich aber durch Deine Angst nicht davon abhalten, trotzdem das Richtige zu tun.
In der heutigen Folge erfährst du deshalb, wie du führen und Angst reduzieren kannst.
