As we continue to think about moving from crisis management to leadership, we explore how leaders are confronting “the new normal, the now normal, and the next normal.”
In our conversation with Nate Pyle, we think about how leaders can help their organizations hold on to their core identities while also making bold adaptations to a changing reality. As the pandemic continues to unfold, the only constant is change, and leaders are having to make new decisions and prepare for their organizations for what is next.
- The need for routine
- Differentiation from government and societal forces
- The push-pull of keeping the operational work going while also leaning into the adaptive demands of the crisis
- Holding on to core identity while also adapting and experimenting
- Before coronavirus, our context was changing but the pandemic has disrupted us enough to make deep change possible
- What gets us through coronavirus is what will help us get through what is after coronavirus
- Communicate widely and stay connected
- Prepare for the impact of long-standing emotional wounds after the crisis ends
