Leaders in Crisis: What this Pandemic has Taught us about Leadership Competence and Incompetence with Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic
This session will evaluate the major leadership lessons from the current covid19 pandemic. Just over 1-year has now passed since the crisis started in full swing throughout the world, forcing the general public to pay substantial attention to the role of leaders in tempering, containing, or augmenting crises.
Through a data-driven examination of the basic tenets from the science of leadership, and leaders’ key performance indicators vis-a-vis managing the pandemic, this session will examine the following key questions:
What type of leader (in both organizations and nations) is best equipped for managing a global crisis?
Do we need to revise our models of leadership for the post-pandemic world?
What have we learned about leadership competence and incompetence during the pandemic?
