Talking Points from Roger Hall 
on How to Overcome Our Irrational Fears
Around the Coronavirus Crisis
:

The virus is real. There is a real threat, but human beings (when unsure of what to do), look to others to imitate. When everyone around them is freaking out, they assume that the proper response is to freak out. It is called “Social Proof.” One of the major problems for urban firefighters is crowd control. If you are looking to be safe, you probably don’t want to be in a crowd next to a burning building. In fact, people see others chasing the firetruck, so that is what they do, too. Before you know it, you’ve got a crowd of grown people chasing a firetruck to a fire. The same is true with toilet paper. You may have plenty at home, but the sparse shelves tell you that, “others are stocking up” so, based on the social proof, you stock up too—even if you already have a supply. Our basic imitative nature as humans creates a chain reaction of bad reactions. This is why leaders are so important in modeling calm, because when unsure, people look to leaders to imitate how to behave.

Leading Organizations Through a Pandemic

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

  •      When people are uncertain what to do, they tend to look at the behavior of those around them for the correct response. 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.

Talking Points from Roger Hall 
on Goals vs. Desires in Job Performance Reviews:

I read a sex therapy book that made the distinction between a desire and a goal.  This mistaken notion can help employers create better job performance reviews. 

  • Goals are different than Desires. A goal is something you want that requires no one else’s cooperation. A desire is something you want that requires the cooperation of at least one other person.
