As any other large-scale crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic one was characterised by enormous levels of uncertainty due to overload of information that generates complexity. This complexity in turn can enhance fear and of course panic at both individual and collective level. However, beyond your personal, family and social safety that is a priority, there is another threat in the air. People management is under threat. Our ability to lead people for various projects and processes through this crisis is very important. Our actions as leaders will highly affect the level of the outcome. Where can we find though the strength to lead our people? How Neuroscience can help us understand what to do? How can we boost our brain capability to guide others? The purpose of this webinar is to explore answers to the aforementioned questions. Drawing on brain science and leadership research, the aim is to inform professionals, managers and scholars of leadership on how to adjust with crisis and use ‘brain approaches’ to lead people through it.
