Those who cannot remember the past is condemned to repeat it!
Right now, we are looking at the human performance but indeed also the limitations affecting us. We need to learn from this situation!
If you put a group of people under pressure the typical reaction will be:
Outer pressure x Tolerance / Interaction = Constant
If you increase the outer pressure on people the natural reaction is to increase their interactions to find a common solution to the outer pressure. If they succeed, this will strengthen their team spirit.
But if it is not possible for the team to find common ground (maybe some is isolated because the leader is demanding a divide and conquer-strategy) this will reduce the individual’s tolerance. Suddenly people start to be sceptical towards each other, distrust will arise, the team spirit will fall apart and if the pressure is big enough panic will start to increase.
Human factors are the essence in all this. We need to train them over and over to remember the things we learned.
I wish all a safe landing in this Corona situation.
