A picture can say a thousand words

Coronavirus Epidemic Graph

In recent days I’ve focussed my daily posts on Crisis Leadership, including the longer post: “Act Now“.

Today’s message is for leaders to communicate a simple and clear message.

There is endless commentary on every aspect of Coronavirus Covid-19, but Max Roser has brilliantly captured what we all need to do in one simple graphic. I sens that we, individually and as a globally-interconnected human race, need to act now, while it is still relatively early, to slow down the rate of infection and #FlattenTheCurve.

On a broader level, “a picture says a thousand words”. Sometimes consider making your simple and clear message with an image.
