Leadership in a Covid world.

At the onset of the first Covid lockdown in March I joined a group of business leaders to help produce a report considering the implications of lockdown on leading teams and patterns of working.

Whilst it felt surreal to contemplate, we were conscious that Covid was likely to define many aspects of our lives at work for the rest of our careers and that the lockdown could be the first of many.

As we are now firmly in the ‘second wave’ and with home-working confirmed for many through until at least Spring 2021 leaders need to adopt a blended leadership approach in order to maintain a unified culture going forward.
