Practical Tools for a New Working Atmosphere

This is part two of a three-part series which includes 16 Free Resources for Leadership in a Season of Crisis.

With the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the rise in many places around the world, people are asking, what do I do next? Many are looking for guidance and direction to make the next best decision to protect themselves, their families, their staff and their communities.

While we at the Global Leadership Network certainly make no claims of healthcare expertise, we recognize that sound leadership in a season of crisis can help prepare us for a new reality, solve difficult problems and provide hope.

Below we’ve curated 6 free leadership resources from our GLS alumni faculty and guest leadership contributors who share practical tools for the new working atmosphere that many of us have found ourselves in recently.
