Crisis Leadership in the Face of the Corona Pandemic
The corona virus pandemic calls for exceptional leadership both globally and at every level of society. This is by no means the worst crisis mankind has faced. But it is no doubt the most extensive.
Great leaders emerge in times of great crisis, especially prolonged ones. In such moments these leaders have historically pursued five time-proven principles:
Stay visible as a role model to your people.
Find ways to give your people a sense of hope.
Be realistic in sharing your assessments, but never lapsing into pessimism.
Respect the feelings which your people need to process in adjusting to the crisis.
Spell out specific, concrete actions which people should take in pushing back against the crisis.
This episode expands on these principles with practical examples of how great leaders draw on them. A PDF transcript of this episode is available for download at https://www.leaderperfect.com/podcast.
