Female Leaders Guide COVID Strategy Differently and Identify Critical Shortcomings Early

“You should never waste a good crisis, what can we learn from this?”

“Our success lies in getting the answers to these questions and taking action to keep pushing forward.”

“How often does the CEO ask his organization for insights? When they do, we really know our response is important.”

“She has a different style; we need to let her run with this.”

“Let’s just wait and see what they come up with. It’s not the way I would do this, but we asked Carlijn to lead this effort, let her lead.”

“Carlijn’s Team was able to catch this, before the concrete had a chance to set on those silos.”

“And what’s more is that it was Carlijn’s plan that unearthed this. If I had been the lead, I would have done it very differently, and I doubt I would have dug deep enough to discover this. Her approach identified this very early so we could make adjustments before it caused a lot of long-term damage.”

“There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to alleviating the impact of COVID-19 on an organization’s performance. Just like the doctor prescribes medication based on unique symptoms, so should senior leaders elicit what their people are feeling/doing before implementing rapid changes.”
