100 CEOs – I am talking to 100+ CEOs to learn about how the pandemic, the economy, and fight for racial justice shape their organizations. A significant shift in their responses began in September. During early talks – March thru August – CEOs talked about getting back to normal. Now they are talking about the future and how to build new capacity. 

“According to Darwin’s Origin of the Species, it is not the most intellectual of the species that survives, it is not the strongest that survives, but the species that survives is the one that is best able to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself.” – Legginson

The field of adaptive leadership identifies these three attributes of successful adaptation:

  • preserves what is necessary for survival
  • discards, deregulates, or rearranges what is no longer needed
  • creates new arrangements

I’m continuing my conversations with CEOs and identifying those experiments that are working and sharing them with you. If I have not asked to speak to you yet, please send me an email, and we’ll schedule a conversation.

And speaking of things that work, I am holding a special webinar with Lisa McLeod, the originator of the term Noble Purpose and the author of two best-selling books, Selling with Noble Purpose and Leading with Noble Purpose.
