One of the biggest and unprecedented crises that this planet has witnessed is the Coronavirus pandemic. The world was put on a stand still. One virus placed us all on equal footing. It does not matter if you are a high profile personality or an ordinary citizen – anyone can be hit by this virus. Even the most successful individuals were not spared. It knows no bounds.
The pandemic is a temporary phase and eventually it will pass. As we traverse this difficult journey, the world needs good Leaders who will step-up to tone down the fears, anxieties and continuously keep the light of hope burning. This is an arduous task that even a seasoned individual can hardly accomplish alone. Every head of state needs a reliable and dependable team that will put the interest of the majority above anything else in order to succeed.
A team is composed of individuals with varied personalities, characters and perspectives – which may result in disagreements and heated arguments – that can lead to delays in decision making, or worse, failure of the team to effectively perform their respective duties. Needless to say, it is not easy to work with a team.
This is the very reason why in building a team, a leader must not simply look for like-minded people, but more importantly like-valued people. Each team member must know how to respect their leader and contribute in bringing the team’s goals to a higher level that will bring success for the team.
The crisis we are in defines the kind of leaders we have. The true character of a person is tested and revealed when under fire. Getting through such a crisis can be tough. But a cohesive team will help resolve this difficult journey, bearing with them a positive outlook.
