The COVID-18 pandemic has brough deep changes to many businesses and not just the obvious, such as curbside meal pickups instead of inside dining.

That’s according to a researcher who interviewed 140 chief executive officers from some of the biggest – and smallest – companies about how the pandemic has changed their leadership.

“What we heard was a kind of shift to humility,” says Joseph Michelli of his research “A shift to vulnerability, a shift to increased focus on safety.”

Will such changes help companies and organizations survive?  Mr. Michelli notes that it has not meant no furloughs or other cuts.  Instead, he has found something not seen in the headlines.

“I saw more people focused on their immediate team members,” he says. “Generally, a focus on the kind of people ‘who brought you to the dance.’”

Joseph Michelli talks about his reach in this Bizgnus Podcast.
