Leading Through Difficult Times with Christopher Diez Massaro
Leading through Difficult Times
In times of unprecedented change or crisis, leaders will face challenges and obstacles they may not have dealt with before. A crisis, such as our current global pandemic, brings about uncertainty and a feeling of loss of control. During these times, resilient leaders can use compassion and empathy to calm fears, create hope, and communicate a clear vision and path through the crisis. Christopher Massaro, lecturer in leadership studies at the University of Southern Maine, will discuss how leaders can navigate uncertainty during a crisis, coach and mentor employees to reduce doubt, apprehension, and anxiety, and communicate with transparency. He will also discuss the importance of emotional intelligence and self-inventory to maintain mental stability as a leader.
