The changing context of leadership and impact of the current crisis

Brunch Date: May 22, 2020

Thank you to Priyanka Banerji-Bhatia for leading our brunch on leadership and the current crisis.

Few events have put leadership to the test so ubiquitously, swiftly and relentlessly as the last few months.

  • What are the implications for leadership and the styles and approaches that are most likely to endure while leaders reconstruct the workplace?
  • What are some of those leadership behaviours we want to see more of and those we want to leave behind?

Watch above as Priyanka goes over the main points that were discussed during our Friday morning brunch session.
