07 Apr Leadership in Times of Crisis: Reveal your Meaning and Purpose
Times like these are revealing of who we are, what we value, how we make decisions, and our psychological agility. This week, I teamed up once again with my friend and colleague Dr. Sarah Sarkis to offer an interactive chat on Leadership in Times of Crisis.
We met as grad students in Clinical Psychology, and while we were in grad school, we experienced 9/11. We were students at that point, so although we wanted to be of service, we weren’t able to be on the front lines. Fast forward to today’s situation
We’ve been hearing people compare this situation to war and to 9/11, and we decided to offer this series of live conversations as a way of giving back. We have been working in the field as Clinical Psychologists for two decades and we are honored to be able to provide whatever help we can in this moment of history. The second call in this series happened this week, and we are planning to continue to host a series of “House Calls” to cover topics related to this pandemic and the subsequent mental health issues.
The truest test of our leadership ability is upon us. No matter your role – CEO, parent, community leader, educator, or friend, we are in this together. None of us are spared from the burdens and pressures of leading by example during these extraordinary times.
Here is the full recording of our second call:
On this week’s call, we talked about how to choose to make the most of your purpose and passion, and more. If you weren’t able to join us, please take a listen now and keep in touch with any questions or topics you’d like us to cover in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned – I’ll announce them as they come on Facebook and Instagram.
We hope to help folks connect through quarantine. After all, we are together in isolation.
