A must-read if you are leading a team during a difficult time
“I read this book nine months into the pandemic, and I wish I had read it earlier. The reflections really gave me a sense of what was negatively impacting me as a leader, and how to move myself and my organization forward and through the pandemic in a different way. Several folks on my team even noticed a shift in my management style, and said how they have appreciated this new side of me. A short but transformative read. Pillar #2 was my favorite, and the exercises were where I learned the most.”
