Covid-19, Doctor Fauci, Leadership and Change

Charged with the task of changing behaviors among a nation of over 300 million people is hard to grasp. However, those of us responsible for leading change, in our own organizations, should take note.

Leading our Nation’s medical response, was Dr. Antony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Fauci advanced a clear and fact-based explanation as to why changes in our behaviors were necessary. He laid out a series of actions that were well-defined and compelling, that if followed, was our best means of defense. Throughout, he communicated by providing regular factual updates complete with visual charts and measures emphasizing the dire need for change and the progress being made.
