What Dr. Parry Can Say in an Interview:
3 Strategies for Work-Life Balance in the “New Normal”:

Talking Points from Roger Hall 
on Leading Organizations Through a Pandemic:

When everyone else is freaking out, then they assume that freaking out is the correct response. “Everyone else is buying pallets of toilet paper. I guess I’ll buy a couple pallets too.” I’m not a big fan of Napoleon Bonaparte, but I do like his quote: “A leader is a dealer in hope.” There is no doubt that the Coronavirus pandemic is serious, but the fear of the pandemic is creating its own set of problems. In times of uncertainty, leaders can help their people have hope for a better future. Most anyone can handle a brief adversity, if they believe that there is a better future ahead.

The Manager’s Role:
