[Interview] How to Lead and Drive Innovation During a Crisis
During times of crisis, leadership teams are forced to adjust to the changing environment and find solutions to new problems. While this can bring about a lot of stress, anxiety and serious challenges, crisis situations can also bring about innovation.
Often, in times of crisis, the solutions developed change the way we live, not just during the crisis but well into the future. We find new ways to do things, new products are created, and the way companies do business is fundamentally altered.
