Description

We are in the middle of huge crisis and uncertainty. The Covid-19 crisis is taking a toll on Indian Pharma Leaders. Many leaders are not sure - what is of critical importance at this time? What are they are supposed to do and how they are supposed to do it? There are enormous challenges that majority of leaders have not faced before.

• Many leaders had to take a pay-cut, downsize their teams, and deliver bad news up and down the organisation.

• Working from home for months and feeling stressed because there is no light at the end of the tunnel.

• What can you do to stay focused and upbeat during this prolonged uncertain time?

• How can you learn to reframe the situation that you are facing?

• Who can you vent your frustration and feelings to? And, what can you do to recharge when most of your usual outlets are not available?

Leading effectively — especially during a crisis, needs emotional maturity and patience. If you can’t retain your cool and composure in the face of frustration and adversity, you won’t be able to keep others in your team, calm.

While this is really difficult, how can we change our focus and think about it differently?

This is probably the biggest growth opportunity that you will ever have in your career, If only you can manage through this and make sure your team weather this storm.

Let’s discover the power of emotional intelligence in leadership, and challenge how leaders can develop this competency to not only improve self-management but also handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.

Once complex set of emotions are identified, accepted, explored and reframed, they become a strong foundation for making the right decision. The decision needs to be aligned with goals.

EQ or emotional quotient reflecting emotional intelligence is the only differentiator in reality. This is because most people are not doing Einsteinian jobs, so average IQ is sufficient, however, the differentiator between performers is their EQ (aka social skill and empathy mainly). Further, improving IQ is a difficult thing - but improving EQ is doable and easier. EQ is helpful for success... See more

It depends upon liabilities and responsibilities. People under such Uncertainty situations one should focus on what is in their control and what they can influence.
