We each handle crises in different, typical ways. With Coronavirus now posing a serious threat to numerous nations, this video explores not the details of the disease itself, but the phenomenon of our different responses to the crisis.
Your response may serve you well... but consider how others may approach the challenge with a completely different perspective.
This is not a medical video, it is not a public service announcement, it's going to be a video about the way in which we handle challenges
The first thing is to realize that the way that we respond to a crisis situation any challenge is related not so much to the nature of the crisis but to who we are as individuals.
So who we are affects our response a lot more than the actual situation itself because, as people have said many times in the past, the way we do anything is the way that we do everything.
In that light what I want to do is break down six character types six key typical responses that people bring to any kind of crisis and I wonder which one ones of these you identify the most with.
These archetypal characters are: the Sovereign (King/Queen/Boss), the Warrior, the Sage, the Mystic, the Lover and the Jester.
We are, of course, a mix of all these characters but if you look at your own reaction to challenges, ask yourself which of those characters is dominant for you.
