93. Lead In A Vacuum

At Microsoft, we have our fair share of re-orgs  I am sure that where you are there are uncertain times too. I am always surprised at the number of colleagues, at all levels, that are willing to sit back during these times of uncertainty and wait to be told what to do. I have found that these are actually a great time to lead. There can be less headwind and less opposition. Sideline observers say why bother because this will all get sorted out in the near future. But what I have found is that much can get done in a short amount of time during these times. And the fact that you step it up to continue to move forward in times of uncertainty is noticed and usually rewarded.
