Years ago I met someone who told me that he had always wondered what it would be like to live through a revolution. A revolution is a period of rapid and sweeping change.
McKinsey believe that Covid has accelerated certain changes in our world by as much as 10 years. I suggest that we are living through a revolution right now, in all sorts of ways.
As leaders I believe we have an obligation to steer this particular revolution so that we all can come out the other side to a better more compassionate, more flexible and more human world.
It would be worth us all taking a moment and to understand what we have learned as a result of the last 12 months.
Some of my learnings include:
So what about this for an idea? Instead of obsessing about what we have lost over the last year, wouldn’t it be more productive to focus on what we have learned and shaping a better future? It would be naïve to think that we would ever go back to a pre Covid revolution world and given what we have learned I don’t particularly want to.
What does our better future world look like and how are we going to create if for ourselves, our family and our firm? What a waste it will have been to have gone through everything we have gone through and not learned the lessons it has been teaching us.
Doing good by doing well. A well led business will benefit the world more than almost anything else.
