In a recent interview with Fox Business and MSN, I was asked “How should a leader address Roe vs. Wade?”
During times of crisis and change, you will face the most important tests of your skills and you have an obligation to do what is in the best interests of all stakeholders.
It’s important not to overreact before all information is available.
This means not reacting to rumor, innuendo, conspiracy theories or emotion and suspending judgment until the court rules on the issue so you can understand the full scope of the situation.
You, as a leader, should be a voice of calm and reason. Once the ruling is issued, consider bringing in outside experts to meet with employees, families and interested parties to explain the ruling and its implications.
