Nancy Koehn—a historian, Harvard Business School professor and our guest on Beyond COVID—did a deep dive into history’s most outstanding leaders and what they tell us about the qualities of leadership for her book: “Forged in Crisis: The Making of Five Courageous Leaders.”
What she learned is that leaders are not born; they are made. They are made through solving everyday problems but also through crises.
So Nancy talked with host Lesley Weidenbener about how business owners and managers can use this pandemic to develop the skills that will lead their organizations out of the COVID crisis and on to better things.
Also, hear from IBJ reporter Susan Orr about the newest round of paycheck protection funding and what it means for small businesses.
