In times of crises there are always psychological implications that leaders should be aware of, take into consideration and ensure are addressed. In this interview Dr Claudelle talks to well renowned work psychologist Dr Natasha Winkler-Titus about the psychological effects of the pandemic on people and what organisational leaders and HR practitioners should focus on in leading people through a crisis.
We are often quite unaware of how our belief systems are influenced by various external factors, and how those beliefs may impact on our decisions and actions.

Reflecting on how we have come to our conclusions should be standard practice for leaders.
