LEADERSHIP SPEAK : Being responsible in everything
The pandemic is a gigantic stress test on our world. The immense financial and operational pressures on companies is starting to tell; businesses with resilient ways of working have pulled further away from their industry peers, while those not geared to respond with predictable agility to crisis and opportunities are falling behind. The biggest learning from all this is that if companies want to take charge of their destiny, they must reimagine themselves in a more resilient, agile, de-layered and de-bureaucratized avatar. This means making themselves so sentient that the nerve tips of the organization are able to quickly sense and respond to the changes in the context that surrounds the business.
