We are truly experiencing a period of crisis and uncertainty. It is difficult to predict when the crisis will end and how long it will last.
This much is certain: We have been through crises before. We have learned from them and we have emerged stronger. I have no doubt that together, we will survive this crisis. We will reimagine and re-invent ourselves and our organizations. We will innovate and improve our products, services, processes and strategies.
At HMG Strategy, we are dedicated to supporting and enabling your efforts to provide strong, effective and courageous leadership within your organizations.
Beginning this week, we will launch a series of virtual briefings focused exclusively on augmenting and strengthening your executive leadership capabilities. These virtual briefings, which are themed Enterprise 2025: Lead, Reimagine, Reinvent: Leading Courageously Through Uncertain Times, will feature insightful interviews and thought-provoking panel discussions with world-class technology leaders and executives from major firms and corporations operating across the various sectors of our global economy.
I am certain that you will find these discussions highly valuable and engaging. Topics will include:
· Leading with the CEO and the Board During a Crisis
· Strengthening Customer Relationships
· Collaborating with Business Partners
· Leading and Reassuring Your Teams in Times of Crisis
· Retaining and Inspiring Your Core Teams
· Thinking Creatively Through Market Challenges and Uncertainty
· Managing Supply Chains Effectively
· Innovating Through Times of Crisis
The first 60-minute session will take place on March 20th at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT will feature a discussion between myself and Tony Leng, Managing Director, Digital Transformation and CIO Practice Lead, Diversified Search. Throughout his 40-year career, Tony has conducted hundreds of C-level searches for companies that are transforming their organizations using digital technologies.
Drawing upon his background as a search executive, a former CEO and as a current Chairman and board member, Tony will share the leadership attributes that top-tier executives demonstrate during crises along with recommendations for current leaders to act courageously.
I look forward to your participation in these practical discussions, and I will keep you posted with registration and other details for the March 20th and future events as we add more digital leadership events to our schedule.
Unquestionably, this is a global crisis with cascading effects across multiple sectors of the economy. From my perspective, a recession appears inescapable.
And yet we’ve survived other crises and recessions before. There have already been 47 recessions in the history of our nation, and we will doubtlessly experience more in the future. Most of us can remember the sharp economic downturns and recessions of the past 30 years. We got through all of them, and we’ll get through this one, too.
Navigating the turbulence ahead will require astute and courageous leadership. This plays to our strength as experienced technology leaders and executives. Collectively, we possess the skills and acumen necessary for handling periods of turbulence and uncertainty. As a group, we have a unique view of complex transformational processes. In other word, we know how to get things done and we're not afraid to tackle the hardest problems.
