Why have some leaders managed the COVID-19 crisis while others have failed? And, what lessons can we learn?

Just over a year has passed since the coronavirus crisis began its rampage across the world. As we continue to live through economic hardship, isolation, illness, and the loss of more than 2 million lives, the virus has focused our attention on the role of leaders in tempering, containing, or even exacerbating a crisis. And, for many, it has driven home a painful lesson: leadership matters. 

In this webinar, renowned psychologist and leadership expert Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic will engage the audience in a highly interactive, data-driven examination of the science of leadership and the key lessons we can learn from those leaders who have managed the pandemic best and those who have managed it the worst. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of: 

  1. What we have learned about leadership competence and incompetence during the pandemic
  2. What types of leaders (both political and organizational) are best equipped for managing a global crisis
  3. How we need to revise our models of leadership for the post-pandemic world

The session will involve a presentation of the key ideas followed by an extended Q&A with the audience.
