Background: A Case for Immediate Leader Support 

The pervasive and prolonged COVID crisis has created an unprecedented level of anxiety, stress and exhaustion for everyone. Healthcare professionals are feeling overwhelmed and incapacitated at a time when optimal performance is needed most. 

Leaders operate as the key resource for staff support, regulation and performance. Healthcare professionals need their leaders more than ever, to keep them grounded and focused on what matters most; to handle what is going on now, so they can best manage what comes next. 

These times require an exceptional response; an approach that equips leaders with the capacity, to connect, direct and protect their people in a manner that reinforces resilience and preferred practice-performance through and well-beyond this storm.
