This morning I told my team that I hadn’t gotten a lot of sleep last night. It turns out that I wasn’t nearly alone. We all suffered some trauma yesterday.
So I canceled our three-hour quarterly OKR planning session this morning. We’ll meet briefly to check-in with each other and will do OKRs next week. If I hadn’t shared my thoughts, they might never have said anything, but that’s what our team needed.
Here’s my advice to you: check-in with your team, share your feelings, find out how they’re doing, and then adjust your plans accordingly. Please do it now!
