“In the midst all the upheaval resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s natural for leaders to feel powerless and anxious. Many are wondering how their business will survive, what the new normal will look like, and just what the pandemic will mean for their personal and professional lives,” says David Grossman, founder and CEO of The Grossman Group. “But there are in fact concrete things leaders can do to navigate the uncertainty, actions they can all take to lead and communicate with heart – and guts. That’s what this eBook provides, clear direction for how to be the very best leader and communicator you can be during this critical moment.”
Inspired by a recent series of popular webinars on this topic, The Grossman Group developed the eBook to provide leaders an additional valuable resource, featuring the “Great Eight” ways to communicate in a courageous and thoughtful way. They include:
