This global pandemic has swiped us off our two feet and left us spinning in life and leadership. Anxiety, stress, disappointments, and loss have become the dominant narrative. What if COVID-19 was an invitation to learn to grieve and lead ourselves better? Leaders must learn to lead themselves better if we want to others with compassion and courage through this pandemic. As a veteran leader and senior pastor at Soul City Church in Chicago, Jeanne Stevens has experienced loads of grief and has learned how grief can lead us toward wholeness. We talk about how grieve these losses, how unprocessed grief shows up in our life and leadership, and how we can practice wise self-leadership during this challenging time.
