Throughout history, leadership is always needed. From monarchies to elected officials to unassuming individuals thrust into positions of leadership, society needs leaders who have the charisma to take charge.
Though it might be hard to define leadership, times of crisis allow for stark contrasts between true leaders and leaders that fall short. The people who rise to the moment and lead with empathy, respect, and courage are true leaders. Throughout history as well as in today’s world, this is seen, making it easy to identify true leaders from not.
Currently, the coronavirus pandemic is a global period of distress. The stress placed on first responders and families around the globe is unparalleled to anything the world has ever seen before. Families have lost jobs, the economy has collapsed, and individuals fear sickness or even death. With a cure still out of reach, strong leadership has become even more vital.
