Instead of a POINT crisis and a recovery; like a
- Tornado / Hurricane
- Terrorist attack
... where you get a KaBoom, an acute crisis and a recovery over days to weeks. You know, the kinds of disasters we have drills for, the ones we have code names for.
This pandemic is a series of slow tidal waves, overwhelming everything and everyone for weeks at a time as the wave hits, only to return months later and do it again.
Sheer fatigue, exhaustion, even a sense of helplessness and hopelessness are common for you and your care team.
All of us can rally and unite in response to an acute crisis. All hands on deck!
But how do you continue to lead and remain a high performance team for weeks and months on end when the tide of illness refuses to recede?
