We’re in the midst of two pandemics, both invisible at the root, and both causing extreme outcomes once realized. The first pandemic is COVID-19. The second pandemic is anger.Whether it’s road rage, attacks on social media, cyberbullying or terrorism, anger is escalating and spreading as only a virus can. Can we stop this second pandemic?
We may not be able to cure the world, but we can take control in our area of influence as leaders and in our personal lives. Here are some methods to increase awareness and help stop the spread.
Each day that the current pandemic crisis extends and evolves, it becomes more apparent that this is not going to be limited to a short-term event. This does not relieve us as leaders from having to make critical short-term decisions — in some cases to survive — but we must simultaneously make decisions that will impact the mid– and longer–term.
