06 Jul And Those Who Don’t Know The Difference Won’t MAKE A Difference
A great many “would be” leaders are about to go extinct.
Like a forest fire, the flames of COVID will prune and eliminate the underbrush of pretenders – leaving only the substantive behind.
But the collateral damage inflicted on followers who believed – until it was too late – will be severe.
Before the COVID pandemic it’s estimated that approximately 85% of the global workforce was disengaged. In the United States, some 66%. (No cheers please.)
Now, in the wake of months of isolation, lay-offs, furloughs, fear, and uncertainty – want to make any assumptions on how engaged workers will be?
COVID is a human condition – regardless of its genesis.
Control and coercion won’t bring us back from the brink.
Managers might try.
But it will take leaders to get us to the new tomorrow.
