In times of crisis, whether internal or external, the best leaders make themselves highly visible. When employees are uneasy, nervous, or upset, they want to see and hear from their leader. Leaders should remain highly visible and attempt to add some perspective to what’s going on inside or outside of the organization.
In leading during this pandemic, most leaders are forced to think and behave in ways that feel unfamiliar. Whether it’s a technological, financial, natural, or health crisis — at work or in the community — crises demand that leaders take an emergency response plan and adapt it as new evidence and factors present themselves.
Leading Through Crisis
To help leaders navigate from crisis to recovery, Berkeley Executive Education publishes short-form videos from Haas School of Business faculty. Topics vary across disciplines including neuroscience and ways to stay productive while balancing personal and work life to creating personal connections in a virtual world to building resilience in the global pandemic economy.
