Learnings form Covid-19, part 3
Covid-19, appeals to us to preserve life at all costs. In order to do so, those responsible at all levels have a role to play, including making serious decisions. Life is sacred. Leaders have played a great role in both its protection and destruction. This situation has led us to the exercise of discontinuity leadership, the leadership that is experienced in times of crisis when we miss the principles of anticipation. Many leaders have made good decisions and bad decisions because they did not see the contours of the problem. Faith and Praxis for global leadership, through its vision and mission, is making efforts to find solutions for addressing this global problem.

Covid 19, made us aware of the inter-connectedness of all social, economic, ethical, political and religious systems. This invisible and destructive enemy has stopped the course of life and has changed the established precepts. The pandemic has revealed the fragility of our organizations and the interconnectedness of all systems and subsystems. This requires us to be more open-minded in addressing the problems of our institutions in a holistic manner and in a systemic approach to preserve harmony between humans and the ecosystem. This approach strongly matches Faith and Praxis' exhortations in the development of its training programs for leaders. It must further help leaders integrate this approach and work in a network.
