Covid-19, a microscopic piece of genetic material, is testing our leadership.
Competence matters. In the midst of our crisis today we turn to the leadership of experts – epidemiologists, researchers, pharmacologists, doctors, health professionals, food producers, food distributors, refuse collectors, public utilities. We turn to political leaders, company leaders, community leaders, volunteers, family and so many more.
Character matters. Whether our leaders are considerate or brutal, honest or duplicitous, co-operative or combative, altruistic or narcissistic is very important.
Trust matters, and it matters more than ever, and trust is at its highest when leadership combines high competence with good character.
We matter too, you and I. Our own personal leadership skills are tested as we take on new responsibilities and make decisions that affect ourselves and others in situations that are new for everybody.
Think about this, dear reader: How are you exercising your leadership skills in the heyday of the coronavirus?
