The importance of leadership and how to develop it in ourselves and the others is one of the most covered topics in business-oriented seminars, public lectures, articles, textbooks, scientific research papers and self-help books. In a matter of weeks at the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak in Bulgaria scores of companies and NGOs of all sizes and kinds demonstrated what is true leadership in real-life conditions. Concerned not only about the health of their employees, clients and their families, but also for the whole society, the private and the public sector behaved proactively. Companies and organisation took the initiative and acted quickly and effectively, investing time and valuable resources to minimise the negative effect of the state of emergency and the social distancing measures over the economy and public health.
In a state of emergency of unprecedented proportions even in the standards of a former Communist country Bulgarians have resorted to the tried-and-tested method of letting off some steam. Just like in the darkest days of life under Todor Zhivkov and the comrades people of all walks of life devise... jokes.
