5 Skills for success during isolation

5 Skills for success during isolation

As the world battles through the COVID-19 crisis, it’s important to remind ourselves and our teams about how important it is to stay positive and to keep learning.  NASA has compiled a list of the top 5 skills astronauts need to have to be successful in long periods of isolation.

Considering that we’re all astronauts on planet earth at this time, now is a good time to look at the list:

 

 Skill 1 - Communication 

  To talk so you are clearly understood. To listen and question to understand. Actively listen, pick up on non-verbal cues. Identify, discuss, then work to resolve conflict.


 Skill 2 - Leadership/Followership

 How well a team adapts to new situations. A leader enhances the group’s ability to execute its purpose through positive influence. Follower (aka subordinate leader) actively contributes to the leader’s direction. Establish an environment of trust.


 Skill 3 - Self-Care

 How healthy you are on psychological and physical levels, including hygiene, managing time and personal stuff, getting sleep, and maintaining mood. The ability and willingness to be proactive to stay healthy.


 Skill 4 - Team Care

 How healthy the group is on a psychological, physical, and logistical level. Manage group stress, fatigue, sickness, supplies, resources, workload, etc. Nurture optimal team performance despite challenges


 Skill 5 - Group Living

 How people cooperate and become a team to achieve a goal. Identify and manage different opinions, cultures, perceptions, skills, and personalities. Individuals and groups demonstrate resiliency in the face of difficulty.

 

Specifically, with regards to # 1 and 2 above, and as a goodwill gesture to you, we’re happy to make available to your teams our suite of digital courses on personal effectiveness. These mobile-friendly and interactive training modules are specially designed for front-line team members and are a great resource for self-learning, particularly so at a time when team members are working in an isolated environment.
