Great Leadership In The Time of Coronavirus

Reading time – 29 seconds  .  .  .

There was some most impactful leadership offered to the children of Britain during the darkest days of the Battle of Britain. Princess Elizabeth was 14 years old in 1940, when she provided a clear, caring radio message, offering understanding and hope to the children of those besieged islands. Listen to her here and imagine receiving her message in that world gone mad.

She is now 93-year-old Queen Elizabeth, the same person who spoke to and comforted children back in that awful time. On Sunday, April 5, 2020 she was once again called upon to bring her calm resolve to offer reassurance and hope to all the world, a place that has once again gone mad. Listen to her here and imagine you’re a front line healthcare worker or you’re quarantined at home as a loved one lies on a gurney in the hallway of a vastly overcrowded hospital ER. This is what you need to hear. This is what great leadership looks and sounds like.

It’s time to give a think to what your people need. There is a constant rumble of underlying anxiety in each of them. Given that, how will you lead?

    As always, lead by example. Be the one who volunteers to help in a food bank or a distribution point or as a delivery person for those who can’t get out safely to fill their own needs. Be a volunteer driver or delivery person.

    Most of all, for as long and to whatever extent that you can, be there for others who need help. Organize your staff, your neighbors, your friends and others you may know to help the helpless, the homeless, the frail and infirm.

    Everyone needs help sometime. Right now we are in a time when most everyone needs some kind of help. A friend recently told about a trip that he undertook, prox. 27 miles each way, to the only place available with the medication an elderly neighbor really needed.

    Be there for your neighbors, your fellow employees, your fellow worshippers. Do the right things. Bee the leader, or the follower, that is needed. Lead by example.

What do you think?

Keep the conversation going by both adding your comments and by passing this along to three colleagues. That’s how we all improve.
