5 Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Experience
Few times in our history has political leadership at every level of government been so visible as it has been in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. And the visibility has been on a daily basis.
People have therefore been able to see great leadership on display, along with other leadership which has not necessarily been so great. Even though the crisis is far from passed, we are far enough along in it to identify some principles of leadership which have been reinforced by events surrounding the pandemic.
In this episode I look at five things which leaders can take away from how the pandemic has been managed from a leadership standpoint. I've chosen "take-aways" which are valid and valuable for men and women in leadership in any type of organization.
The importance of giving people a compelling why when you ask them to change
The need to establish clear end-games and stick with them when you ask something extraordinary of your people
The danger to leadership credibility when decision-makers are emotionally detached from their people
The tremendous innovative capability found in people and what that means for leaders who successfully tap into it
The powerful threat which fear poses for clear, rational thought
