Resilient Leadership for the Stay-at-Home era and beyond

Some insights into the challenges that leaders and employees experience when navigating lockdown

Leaders need to find their footing in the uncharted situation we are going through. We found that they are encountering similar experiences and challenges, regardless of their seniority. As we helped them identify possible solutions, we compiled them in the attached document, and gladly share the learning!

In the past couple of weeks, we had many conversations and coaching sessions with leaders and professionals, from all over Europe and the Middle East. We discussed how they experience the current situation and found similarities in their challenges and possible solutions. We share our learnings in the attached document.

We hope you will enjoy these insights and benefit from them – individually, or by using them to trigger great conversations with your teams or in your households.
