The Covid-19 pandemic is constantly evolving, with leaders facing unpredictability, imperfect information, multiple unknowns, and the need to identify responses quickly — all while recognizing the multi-dimensional (health-related, economic, social, political, cultural) nature of the crisis. Responding to the crisis requires adaptive leadership, which involves what we refer to as the 4 A’s:
- Anticipation of likely future needs, trends and options.
- Articulation of these needs to build collective understanding and support for action.
- Adaptation so that there is continuous learning and the adjustment of responses as necessary.
- Accountability, including maximum transparency in decision-making processes and openness to challenges and feedback.
There are five common principles to guide this kind of adaptive leadership across the Covid-19 response. These five principles are not just vital to guide our immediate responses but are also vital for shaping longer-term recovery and resilience plans.
