Episode 17: Effective Leadership in a Lockdown World Paradise Reclaimed Podcast

    • Self-Improvement

What constitutes effective leadership in a world defined by a pandemic, a tectonic pivot, and a near-crippling uncertainty about what tomorrow may bring?

The very fabric of society is transforming before our eyes. The stakes for decisions we make every day – Do I wear a mask? Must I go into that store? Should I sanitize my hands again? – seem momentous, at times absurd. For many of us, our work modes have morphed too, shifting nearly overnight from desks in offices to video meetings at our dining tables.

Yet while isolating from work colleagues and neighbors, we're in extremely tight quarters with our partners and family members, running Zoom meetings in parallel, stealing time from our jobs to help our distance-learning children prove a Geometry theorem or to give the sourdough one last knead.

"These are conditions that were always there, but everything has more gravitas because we're being confronted," Dr. Teri observes. "We're now seeing how we fit into this life as individuals, as organic beings, or as humans."

“Effective leadership has a core of love.”
– Dr. Teri Baydar
-------------------------------------------------------------

Dr. Teri points out that we've all been lulled into accepting a status quo without due reflection or discernment. While nobody should neglect or disavow the suffering endured by many people and groups in the years before COVID-19 struck, certain of us have willingly surrendered our right to question convention, seduced by the sense of security – real or imagined – promised by the status quo.

"Now," she observes, "we're pivoting on every single front."

Dr. Teri believes that we're on the verge of a larger global shift, within which COVID is but one of many catalyzing events. Post-lockdown leadership requires balance: yin and yang, left-brain and right-brain, thinking and feeling.
