The word “crisis” has a well-earned negative connotation. When there is a crisis, there is uncertainty, scarcity, danger, difficulty, and the list goes on. Counterintuitively, a crisis can also afford opportunity. Opportunity to try new ways of working, to refocus priorities, to take actions to benefit long term interests that would not be tolerated in a short term-focused marketplace. It is during a crisis that many leaders rise to the top and provide the direction an organization, and its people, need.

During this session you’ll hear from leaders navigating the current crisis about how they are approaching their obligations to stakeholders and how they are identifying potential opportunities.
