Redefining the Future Business Leader

The impact and scale of the COVID-19 pandemic was both unexpected and unprecedented. Around the globe, we witnessed leaders having to rapidly change their approach to the way they work, manage, and lead their teams to adapt to ever-changing situations.

While many of these changes, such as organisation-wide work from home arrangements, may be a temporary measure to ride out the worst of the pandemic, the global COVID-19 crisis has undoubtedly reshaped the long-term expectations employees have of their leaders. 

As we move to a new future of work, leaders need to account for these new workplace expectations, and adapt to remain relevant and effective in managing their myriad of stakeholders – be they customers, suppliers, employees, board members, or wider communities.

In this e-guide, we explore how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted companies and reconfigured stakeholders’ expectations of their leaders. We interviewed 9 business leaders from diverse industries across the world, to hear their experience and valuable lessons learnt while steering their companies through the pandemic and the resulting ‘new normal’.

  • Making swift yet effective decisions in an ever-evolving world
  • Engaging, building relationships and trust amidst uncertainties
  • Managing employee well-being during and beyond the pandemic
  • Embracing change and innovation
