Psychologists have studied people’s responses to the kinds of pressure that the COVID-19 pandemic is producing. These three research-based ideas about how to handle this pressure are mission critical for leaders in the present moment:
- Not knowing is more stressful than knowing.
- Discipline is your best friend.
- Take action in times of uncertainty by remembering that you can swim.
