To start his talk, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Dr. Kerry Sulkowicz admitted to being at a bit of a loss when asked about best practices for leading through a pandemic. "The honest answer is I don't know," he stated, "because none of us has lived through a pandemic."
Despite that admission, he then proceeded to deliver a number of valuable lessons for leaders of organizations, departments or teams to bear in mind in these confounding and anxiety-provoking times.
Leaning on his experience as a clinician as well as a consultant to leaders of many large and small corporations, he talked about how to effectively help people who are legitimately anxious about the virus, the current economic conditions, the current social conditions, and even those who are just anxious and depressed because of the uncertainty of how long it will be until we can get into a more "normal" state of affairs.
