Leaders Remember You Can Learn from Disasters

During disruption, leaders can learn some strong lessons. The current pandemic, for example, will no doubt teach us a lot about how to effectively navigate a crisis.

Humans are resilient or, as my clinical psychologist colleague Richard Citrin points out, we are programmed to bounce back and to bounce forward. It's built into our DNA and into the way we learn. 

Often, the most valuable life and leadership skills come not from a classroom but from successfully navigating and learning from a challenging experience. And what can be more challenging than a pandemic? I believe the task at hand is to not allow ourselves to get to the point that our brains shift out of the state of heightened awareness where learning is optimal and spill over into full panic mode where learning may be impossible.

Strategy-Driven Leadership: The Book

"Too often there's a gap between what leadership development programs promise and what they actually deliver. Thank goodness, then, for Couch and Citrin. They begin with your organization's business strategy, build skills through actual experiences, and give readers an evidence-based process that delivers results. "
