In 2019, 95% of respondents to PwC’s Global Crisis Survey told us they expected to experience a crisis in the next two years. Then COVID-19 struck. How effectively businesses weather disruption begins and ends with strong leadership.
In this episode, host Kristin Rivera and PwC Global Markets Leader Richard Oldfield explore the attributes of successful leaders in a crisis, the impact of lessons-learned on resilience, and how to emerge from the pandemic with greater employee satisfaction and clarity of purpose.
Leading a business means balancing priorities, particularly when crisis strikes. While it's critical to stabilise and keep the lights on, it’s equally important to look ahead and devise a plan for the future.
In this episode, host Kristin Rivera and PwC Global Markets Leader Richard Oldfield discuss how PwC has balanced both short-term and long-term strategies during the COVID-19 response, the importance of empathy from every leader in an organisation, and how the crisis is redefining the concept of work-life balance.
In times of crisis, it’s important to seek support, from both inside and outside your organisation, to navigate challenges that may be unknown to you but familiar to others. Drawing on the experience and insights of colleagues and peers at the right time can be critical.
In this episode, host Kristin Rivera and PwC Global Markets Leader Richard Oldfield explore PwC's experience tapping into the knowledge of our network, the impact COVID-19 has had on institutional trust, and how businesses have pivoted to solve needs in the global community.
Beyond the public health implications, COVID-19 has triggered significant upheaval in the global economy. In PwC’s Global Crisis Survey 2019, we polled more than 2,000 business leaders about their experience responding to crisis. Our research highlights how critical it is to periodically assess your ability to react and, when necessary, to course-correct, especially when navigating the unknown.
In this episode, host Kristin Rivera and PwC Global Markets Leader Richard Oldfield discuss the importance of self-reflection, how PwC and our clients have responded to the crisis, and immediate next steps for businesses.
