There’s no denying that we are experiencing something that none of us have ever gone through. Things are changing at breakneck speeds, and it seems like the situation evolves every few hours. It can be difficult to navigate through the whirlwind, especially if you are running a business or leading a team. How do you stay strong for them and make sure they’re well taken care of while still paying attention to your own needs. 

Today, on the Instant Impact podcast with Elyse Archer, Elyse is sitting down with Tameika Devine, an expert at leading through uncertainty. Tameika is an elected official, attorney, entrepreneur, mother, and wife. Right now, she’s leading not only her company and family but her entire community. 

Tameika starts us off by sharing some of the biggest mistakes she sees leaders making as they begin to lead through change. For her, it’s essential that you are honest about how much is unknown. Many leaders will feel as though they need ever answer–this isn’t the case! The key is being empathetic of every individual’s situation. 

Tameika offers us her biggest tips for leaders right now:

  1. Communicate as much as possible to everyone–your team, clients, community, and family. We’re in this together.  

And

  1. Be accessible and stay connected! So many people are feeling disconnected from those closest to them. Share your experiences with your team!

Tameika keeps her mindset strong amidst everything we’re hearing by staying true to her faith. On top of that, she makes time to be intentional with everything that she does. Being present in the moment is essential!

Above everything else, Tameika is a mother. Her advice for parents who are trying to teach, parent, and entertain children is to give yourself grace. It’s so easy to be hard on yourself, but we are all doing our best! Additionally, keeping to a schedule prevents you from getting too lax with your tasks. Having three things that you need to accomplish every day reminds you that you are still doing the work! 

Finally, Tameika shares with us some of the blessings she sees coming out of this situation–tune in, there are so many!
