How to Prepare Your Virtual Teams for the Long Haul

Before the pandemic, there were no playbooks for how to convert a co-located team to 100% virtual in a matter of days and we’re finding in our research that the conversion process — and the results — has differed substantially from team to team, even within the same organization. This variability puts tremendous strain on individual employees who are now navigating not just one whole new way of working, but often several. The pressures on teams will continue for the foreseeable future as...

The Case for Reopening Economies by Sector

The greatest challenge we face in the current crisis is striking the right balance between preventing not only the damage inflicted by Covid-19 but also that which comes from a severe contraction of economic activity. This is a matter of both life and death, and prosperity or poverty, as a deep recession is likely to cause widespread hardship, including increased mortality rates for reasons other than the virus. We must, therefore, find smart strategies for reopening businesses while minimizing...

How to ensure that employees return to a healthy business environment? – 6 steps for a successful return to the office

After the official abolition of the state of emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, most companies have resumed regular business activities from their offices. However, the World Health Organization and the Government of the Republic of Serbia recommend maintaining social distance, as a result of which the operations of many companies will be changed.

Why Economic Forecasting Is So Difficult in the Pandemic

The Case for Reopening Economies by Sector The coronavirus pandemic has introduced extreme uncertainty into nearly every aspect of society. Will health care systems hold up? Will scientists develop a vaccine? Are essential workers safe? When can regular employees go back to the office? The answers to these questions — when there are answers — seem to change daily. And with each change the stock market (and our hopes) rises or falls. Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, we’ve seen pervasive...

What Good Business Looks Like

As COVID-19 continues its advance, it is showing that much that we believed was wrong. Things that seemed impossible a few months ago have suddenly come to pass. As it turns out, thousands of businesses, universities, and other organizations can pivot to a totally virtual environment in days, not years. Societies divided by politics and inequality can quickly come together in shows of mass solidarity. The pollution over China can magically disappear. As conventional...

How CEOs Can Lead Selflessly Through a Crisis

You might think that crises tend to bring out the worst in people, but that isn’t reflected in how we view our leaders, at least. In fact, crises cause us to view leaders as more charismatic and effective than we normally do. This is probably why U.S. presidents are almost universally re-elected in times of war. And research has shown that leaders who self-sacrifice tend to be seen as the most effective. Following 9/11, I was so intrigued by crisis leadership that I did a...

Lead Your Team Into a Post-Pandemic World

During the Covid-19 crisis, I’ve spoken with many CEOs who have shared that a key priority for them, naturally, has been the safety and well-being of their employees. And there are many examples of inspiring actions taken by CEOs and companies in support of their employees. But as we’ve come to recognize that this crisis will last more than a few short weeks, companies are now defining their approach for the long haul. I’ve seen two crucial ideas take hold with corporate leaders. One:...

Leading Your Team Past the Peak of a Crisis

It wasn’t the first pandemic. Ebola had plagued other parts of the region before. But leaders of a green energy company in West Africa were not expecting it to strike again, at least not in their area. So when a new Ebola outbreak emerged, the company was still focused on growing the sales of its low-cost solar cells to consumers through retail outlets and a partnership with a union serving agricultural workers. Then the pandemic hit its headquarters city and shut off all commerce. The venture’s...
