The coronavirus pandemic is a crisis unlike any other in recent times. As employees try to ride out this unprecedented crisis, they are stressed and anxious - about what lies ahead: professionally, personally and the state of the world. Even at the best of times, employees crave support, direction and guidance from their managers, who often fall short as coaches that empower and enable. Today more than ever, we need leaders that coach, empower, and provide direction, meaning, and support when employees need it the most. How can you help your employees find their own path amidst so much uncertainty? How can you help them prioritise, and navigate these choppy waters?

Peking University and University of Chicago Joint Lecture Series: Promoting Skills to Promote Social Mobility
10:00 am–12:00 pm
As the bubonic plague made its way westward from China in the 14th century, Christians, Muslims, and Jews in its path thought anxiously about what practices of public health and of piety might save them. In the 21st century, as COVID-19 spreads (much more rapidly) around the globe, we see similar debates over public health and religion. In this virtual Harper Lecture, Divinity School dean David Nirenberg will compare his research on reactions to the Black Death in the Middle Ages with the results of polling on religion and COVID in the United States today.
