Leadership Requirements in Current Situation and Post Covid 19

Leadership Requirements in Current Situation and Post Covid 19

“What kind of Leadership” would be required to manage the current and future crisis post Covid 19. Based on my experience of more than three decades, I have tried to collate my thoughts and perhaps would have acted in the fashion that I am putting across.

Covid 19 crisis is a defining moment for ourselves as well as our organizations. We need to step up and lead accordingly.

Educate Yourself: Things are changing on a daily basis or even on an hourly basis. We need to continously upgrade ourselves and provide the real information to the people below. The melodrama of media should be avoided as they are selling fear psychosis. Well they have an agenda of TRP but we need to be extremly careful.

Be flexible, Be adaptive and be willing to make difficult choices. As a leader you should be knowing what’s the most important Anchor. Safety of everyone is the main anchor, both Physically & Pyschologically. The underline message is to make People Feel Safe.

Build a Clear Plan: We should still think Global but act Local. Define tactical set of steps for New way of Working. Break it down to A,B,C, D etc

Be Sure to leverage your Teams: We should bring team together to ensure alignment on Plans, Priorities and Contingencies. You need to continuously engage them. Engagement could be further strengthened by engaging the families.

Over-Invest in Communication to build your own credibility and optimism. You need to be visible.

Create Connections to develop Rapport with all your stakeholders.

Remember to be Authentic as people can read very well. A genuine approach would leave an everlasting impressions.

Last but not the least “ Manage Yourself “

The crisis needs to be changed into an Opportunity.

Very crisp but covers the whole topic well … unfortunately organisations are still grappling on a day to day basis. Without thinking through…

He is most practical professional I have ever seen in my last 2 decade of experience in healthcare industry. his approach in current situation is quit practical and doable. I believe while implementing his idea to handle current situation is going to help us like anything, at least people will start thinking to do some thing good and positive.

Thanks a lot sir for you thoughtful view and guidance .

Mr. Roopesh Bharagava has a ideology, which is very practical and having foresight.
Moreover he is like Captain cool, in any situation he keeps himself calm and leads from front.
This articulation has also a different edge and doable during COVID’19 crisis.
He is a great Leader with human touch.
