Leading with Emotional Intelligence
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.

• 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?
