What does it mean for an employee at a grocery store, who’s working extended hours amid panicked customers, to hear her boss get on the loudspeaker and thank the team for all the work they’re doing? Authentic leadership is felt most in times of crisis, when effective managers are able to reassure and motivate their charges in support of the mission. This talk offers specific guidance for leaders on how to tap into resilience and compassion to elevate efficacy, purpose and connection — in others and in ourselves.
