Covid-19: day-by-day leadership and an alumni podcast

Like everyone around the world, we are adjusting day-by-day to the changes imposed by this global virus. UCLA leadership provides our students, faculty and staff daily updates about changes to exams, student life, spring quarter scheduling, and general overall hygiene and civic decorum. We all digest the new realities daily and make the adjustments to student goals, professional responsibilities, and personal realities at home, like children, parents, neighbors and friends; everyone is impacted.

This is a time for perspective, patience, and prudence. If ever the world needed you to exercise your personal leadership, this is it. Please give your best self to colleagues and family in these upcoming weeks–people need your steady presence. And we can all wash our hands!

As you may have more time now, here is an interesting podcast of two FEMBA alumni discussing their perspective of Covid-19. Friends since FEMBA, Ryan Hughes ’14 is the Founder of Bull Oak Capital (he has spoken at FEMBApalooza before), and on his new podcast he interviews fellow alum Jim Best ’14, Founder and CEO of Serenity Cancer Patient Advocates. Enjoy!

(The views on the podcast above are those of Ryan and Jim alone. This link is for awareness only, and does not imply accuracy of their conversation.)
