Has anything changed since March this year when the world tipped upside down?

Remember March? The Coronavirus Pandemic hit and everything went topsy turvy and we all wondered what the future held.

At the time, I was of the view that business leaders had a key role to play to help the world get through whatever was to come. So I posted this video.

Now, here we are 8 months down the road and has anything changed? There is still a lot of uncertainty. We live in a politicised, protest-driven, pandemic world.

What we do know is that this is a new normal and it will be here for a while. In that context, the business leaders of the world have an even MORE important role to play. 

Solving problems by creating value will always play a key part in any crisis response and recovery. We need businesses to do that.

With that in mind, I’ve decided to repost my video from March. 

We still haven’t crossed the survival line and much of what I covered back then still applies. Leaders still need to make deliberate choices about what line they will take – green, amber or red.

I’m keen to know, what are the few critical things you need to do to be on the green line in 2021?
