Our hearts and thoughts go out to you, leaders, clinicians, and healthcare workers who are risking your lives to care for the sick and stem the spread of COVID-19. We are also mindful of the people who have been affected by this unprecedented event, communities and governments around the world who are on the front line working on containment. While there is no handy playbook to guide you through this unique crisis, it requires effective leadership, fluidity, stamina, and resolve.
Though there is an onslaught of sage advice on leadership, I borrowed a few tips from Engagly newsletter that you might find helpful:
Fully recognizing that it is nigh-impossible to be prepared for this crisis, we know that all crisis do eventually end. For example, in 2008, President Obama inherited the Great Recession/ Financial Crisis which appeared to be insurmountable. He surrounded himself with the foremost authorities of his time and tackled the situation head on, using it as a stepping stone to enact legislative change. A crisis is always an opportunity to acknowledge responsibility, take ownership and do better.
We wish the best to you, your team, and family.
