Business leaders know whether they’ve built a great culture based on how their teams respond to adversity, and that sentiment is being tested now more than ever. MIT Sloan research indicates that trust and actions are the foundation of leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic, and an overwhelming majority agree that it’s critical for CEOs to show resilience during this time. It’s not an overstatement to say the COVID era will either pull your company culture apart or bring it together. As COVID-19 continues to change nearly all parts of life — and especially in business — the takeaway stays the same: businesses can get through this pandemic just like the smartest ones did through other seemingly impossible disruptive events in the past.
But it’s easier said than done, and many questions remain. How can business leaders navigate decisions for what’s best based on the individual needs, motivations, and interests of each employee? We hosted a webinar discussion to hopefully get to the bottom of just that.
N6A founder and CEO Matt Rizzetta was joined by Limelight Health co-founder and VP of Innovation Garrett Viggers for a discussion that featured insights and perspectives on how business leaders can seize new motivational opportunities amid COVID-19, and how they can galvanize team culture by giving back with empathy and integrity.
