3rd Annual ESADE Alumni Conference in Madrid


Belonging to a group or being part of a network is today an important factor to overcome adversities, according to Luis Rojas Marcos. Speaking at the III ESADE Alumni Annual Conference in Madrid, the New York University Professor of Psychiatry raised the curtain on psychological facets of the crisis.

Crisis situations induce major stress due to the fear and scepticism they instil. "In times like these, feelings of vulnerability and uncertainty surface, but so do those of goodness and togetherness. Why? Because it's easier to survive as part of a group than it is as a lone individual". That's why Rojas believes that belonging to networks, ESADE Alumni being an example, helps members overturn any hardship.

"Another priority in these crisis-hit times is the credibility of a leader". The question of ethics gains ground in times of crisis, and leaders must display confidence and capture the belief and faith of the people. Society calls for reliable people who don't deceive and are capable of transmitting security. Along these lines, "it is tried and tested that leaders' frank, direct and reassuring communication evokes peace of mind, inspiration and congruence in others". According to Rojas Marcos, crises are more bearable if you adopt the stance that they ultimately unveil the simple truth. That's why "in major disasters, having trustworthy leaders enhances our sense of security".

Rojas Marcos is currently Professor of Psychiatry at New York University. In 2005, he was appointed member of the New York State Board of Medicine, the official body that regulates the medical profession in NY state. He has published several articles and books, such as "Beyond September 11", "The Force of Optimism" and "Self-esteem".
