The post-pandemic world will not return to the reality we knew before COVID-19. We explore what exactly this means for leaders and how we can lead our society and economy through this transition.
'Coronomics: Life and Leadership Beyond the Pandemic' brought together a diverse array of top global experts to discuss the transformational leadership, visioning, planning and enterprising skills we need to thrive in this uncertain environment. Building on Cambrian’s FLP-IT framework for building greater resilience, this virtual thought leaders summit provided foresight into future risk and opportunity and identified the steps you can take to prepare for the new structures and patterns that lie beyond the pandemic.
