As chair of a CEO Peer Advisory Board, I am getting to see first hand the courage, dedication, and determination of leaders during this pandemic. I am humbled and inspired.
Leaders of essential businesses all over the world are working hard to keep their employees safe while serving their customers at the same time. Not one of these individuals, trained for this or frankly signed up for this, and yet here they are doing what they know they must.
Each day, these men and women are on the front lines making the hard decisions to maintain that delicate balance between safety and production.
Each day, these men and women must stay current on the latest developments. Each day, they must adapt to whatever changed from yesterday.
- It’s the outgoing CEO of the public company, who could easily call it quits and instead visits factories;
- The CEO of the privately held company that quickly pivoted to make safety products thereby keeping the business viable and enabling all employees to keep their jobs;
- The mayor of your local community who gets paid only a service honorarium, and yet works countless hours to serve,
All of these leaders deserve our thanks, appreciation, and patience as they navigate this storm. They are the unsung heroes of these times.
Let’s work together. You can learn more about my leadership and transition coaching as well as my peer advisory boards here.
