Dear Friend,

There are those who contend that the global pandemic has changed what followers need from their leaders, but that’s not really true. What has changed are the circumstances, and those circumstances have served to emphasize what followers have always needed from their leaders.

For instance, a recent Gallup survey found that the four greatest emotional needs workers have right now are trust, compassion, stability and hope. Those seem like perfect antidotes to fears and uncertainties brought on by the coronavirus chaos. When you think about it, though, when have followers not needed trust, compassion, stability and hope from their leaders?
