“It’s about the give.” That’s what @Christoph Niebel said yesterday on our all-hands call. We as an organization and individuals have so much to offer. We just have to figure out how to get it out into the universe.
Christoph is our Chief Sales Officer and he must be feeling an awful lot of pressure. But it did not show. He had pulled together strong and positive examples of how our teams around the world were extending help to our clients.
A Canadian bank is providing virtual, on demand coaching for their mid level managers who are now managing virtual teams. You have to do more than learn Zoom to be an effective virtual leader.
A large German automaker is going to give resiliency workshops to its front line supervisors. They have a whole new host of things to deal with but they need to keep propelling the business forward.
Our offices in China are back up and running and my colleagues there are rising to the challenge for our leadership and recruitment services.
Regardless of the business or sector we are in, we must continue to reach out to clients and communities to offer our experts, our advice or just an ear. This is a time of intense uncertainty, but we will come out of it stronger and better than we were before. We just have to help each other along the way.
