Leaning into the Turn — Refocusing Leadership and Communication in the Continuing Coronavirus Crisis — Jay Millen

While the scientific community had hoped the heat and humidity of the summer months might limit the spread and severity of the virus, we are seeing that the dreaded specter of community spread continues to be a problem in many states, provinces, and dense urban landscapes. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said recently that the world is still ‘knee-deep in the first wave’ of the Coronavirus pandemic and that action is needed to curb the spread.

It is incumbent on leaders — especially in our business and not-for-profit communities — to think carefully about the steps needed to galvanize their organizations, continue preparing for and reacting to rapid change in the spread of COVID-19, and redouble their efforts to engage with and protect their team members and families in the months ahead.

We discuss five critical “checklist” issues to review and capabilities to examine to prepare for the next several months to potentially well into 2021, pending the development of therapeutics and vaccines to combat the virus.

And we end with sharing the lessons we integrated into our initial recruiting process to create the best possible engagement within current COVID-19 constraints, as well as to provide useful insights into the on-boarding process.
