When we look back at the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, we will see not just the human and economic loss inflicted by the virus, but an important gain – a growing global awareness of the value of respect.Inspired by Bianca Ghose, WEF, 13th August 2020
As companies coped this spring with plummeting demand, anxious employees and volatile costs, it became increasingly clear that leadership priority has shifted to maintaining the respect of all stakeholders. As with the financial crisis of 2008, survivors in the long run will tend to have the equivalent of a strong immune system; not only in their balance sheet, but in the level of respect they have been able to develop with their stakeholders.
Doesn’t that read in a more positive way?
Start trusting by respecting more.
