Leadership in a Crisis


Today there is a need for a different approach to Leadership. The outbreak and rapid spread of the coronavirus has created havoc not only to our health systems but to the way we work. Overnight many businesses have transitioned millions of employees to work from home. For a great many of those employees, working virtually is a new reality. Additionally, employees are seeing 24/7 pandemic news and their savings being shredded. As leaders and their teams make this sudden shift, it will be a challenge to ease employees’ anxiety, collaborate effectively and function productively

Because of the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic leaders are being forced to think, behave and lead in ways that are unfamiliar and uncomfortable. With employees unmoored and a work-life experience that’s ever-shifting, leaders need to exhibit a leadership style that is situationally appropriate. Employees and organizations have different requirements and expectations of their leaders – than they did 30 days ago. And organizations and employees – more than ever – need their leaders to ‘step up.’
