Leadership & Innovation Tools in Crisis Times

The world and the way we do business has been upended in recent weeks by unprecedented measures taken to slow the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses have transitioned to work-from-home models, including those that never considered or prepared for telecommuting. Employees are at home, sometimes with their children, whose school has either been put on hold or moved online.

It’s a time that prompts fear, anxiety, uncertainty and stress. Business owners and executives are concerned about how to keep up culture and adhere to deadlines. Some businesses face dire challenges in the face of disrupted supply chains or customers who are forced to stay home.

In response, we at Fenaroli & Associates want to support executives, board members and other leaders in navigating these challenges. As leadership roles evolve in response to rapidly evolving news and updates pertaining to the impacts of this global health emergency, facilitating a way for those in the C-suite and other key decision-makers to share and access vetted, valuable resources for enhancing leadership in crisis times is a natural extension of our business. The Fenaroli & Associates way means that we are brave enough to be curious. We’re curious about how businesses will evolve during this time, and we are compiling tips, ideas, tools and positive outlooks to inspire leaders, help them manage circumstances with poise and confidence, and ultimately do business in a new way.

Collaboration is key to our business. Please feel free to utilize and share these resources at will. We also encourage you to actively participate in expanding this knowledgebase by contributing ideas for resources that we can add to this library. Simply use the form submissions at any time. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.
