COVID-19 took the world by surprise, then by storm, compelling us to adapt to new realities which considerably impact our individual, social and professional lives. The Government of Canada, responsible for leading the pandemic crisis response, had to take effective and swift action in a rapidly shifting environment, driven by a new and mysterious threat. Implementing a multitude of effective responses across the country during COVID-19 posed a significant challenge for the Federal Government with regards to speed, agility and performance, and they proved up to the task, using an action learning, collaborative and iterative approach.

In this module, Françoise Morissette explores Canada's current pandemic response. First, she examines:
  • How we are facing the storm in the present?
  • What we learned from previous pandemics in the past, and how we built capacity over time…?
  • Which blueprint is beginning to emerge for a successful post-pandemic future…?
Françoise is a respected consultant, academic, and author with a national profile. She is a major contributor to the field of transformational leadership with a proven ability to think and act across systems.
