Leadership in a Time of Crisis The Way Forward in a Changed World Compiled by Marshall Goldsmith and Scott Osman

The business world as we knew it will never be the same again. And in this time of crisis, leaders are looking for the best guidance and direction they can find.

Leadership in a Time of Crisis offers a wide range of thought on the present COVID-19 pandemic from some of the world’s most effective consultants in all areas of employee and customer growth and engagement—considering the ramifications on people, on the healthcare system, on local, national and global economies, and on our businesses.

In early March 2020, as the present crisis was unfolding, member consultants of the not for profit organization Marshall Goldsmith 100 Coaches began meeting daily to discuss the developments and repercussions of current events. They heard from global leaders from around the world. This book reflects the one insight from each of the thirty-seven contributors that could most help leaders during this time of unprecedented crisis. Each contributor believes that by supporting the growth and development of leaders in all areas, we can create more value in the companies we serve and better lives for the people with whom we work and the communities in which we live.
