Principles in dealing with crisis

Recently, went through this enriching podcast (here: between Pankaj Mishra and Ravi Venkatesan. The core theme of the conversation was building resilience, which is what is the need of the hour. Few thoughts that resonated with me: 1. Stockdale paradox: Embrace reality that you are in and plan for the worst but at the same time hoping for the best and staying optimistic. This is the paradox that we have to be able to hold. 2. Seek hashtagOpportunities: Every organization can make something that can be leveraged in this crisis. What is it that the world needs right now that you have some capability to produce ? 3. Lead with heart and head in these times: Treat others the way you would want to be treated is really important. 4. Develop a practical set of short term plans: Develop 2 scenarios- 1) Realistic scenario 2) Worst case scenario 5. Stay calm: Make thoughtful hashtagdecisions and calm down others who.may be agitated.
