COVID19 – you lead out of the paradox

COVID 19 – A dialectical moment in time – Embracing paradox is key – You are the tool

COVID19 PRESENTS US WITH A PARADOXICAL CHALLENGE

Dr. Claudia Nagel, MD Nagel & Comp Leadership Consulting, President Elect ISPSO, Visiting Professor HUBS, independent NED

Two possible outcomes of the pandemic are discussed in public – the negative idea of complete destruction and the developing of something new and better. The results of the pandemic seem to oscillate between the two opposing developments of either the apocalypse comes over us or a new-born and thus better phoenix comes out of the ashes. Interestingly both images are Christian symbols once connected with the Bible, however they have left that context and entered ordinary language. They represent on one side night and destruction and on the other side sun and resurrection – The world will go under or the world will completely renew itself. We can call this a paradoxical or a dialect moment in time.

Before we start to look at how to deal with paradoxical problems, I would like to share my observations about the two opposing perspectives.
