In today’s podcast, we ask, “What can we learn from crisis? Can it teach us about our leadership style and our business resilience?”
A strong vision, courage, integrity, humility, strategic planning, team management, and focus make a good leader.

So, when there is a crisis, the team would expect the leader to use all of these qualities to inspire them and offer direction.
Your business can be faced with crises like COVID-19, service failure, or PR damage. How you respond says more about who you are and how you lead, than it does about the problem itself. It is challenging and emotionally disturbing with a crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic strikes. This type of crisis has never happened before and was sudden. The pandemic is unfamiliar and uncertain; there is a need for effective responses and strategic behavior from business owners.
