Weekend Leadership Reading: 6/5/20

  |   Weekend Leadership Reading Print Friendly and PDF

Weekends are time when things slow down a little. Your weekend shouldn’t be two more regular workdays. That’s a sure road to burnout. Take time to refresh yourself. Take time for something different. Take time for some of that reading you can’t find time for during the week.

Here are choice articles on hot leadership topics culled from the business schools, the business press and major consulting firms. This week there are articles about business after the pandemic.

From Bain & Company: Back to Work

“Recovery from Covid-19 will require resilience as companies advance, retreat, adapt—and repeat as necessary.”

From Daniel Küpper and Claudio Knizek: Restarting Work Safely and Under Control

“As companies emerge from lockdown, they are striving to ensure the safety of their people and the continuity of their operations. And they want to do both cost-effectively and with an eye toward transformation and renewal. For most companies, returning to yesterday’s version of work is not a recipe for success, and restarting the business may not happen all at once.”

From the Economist: Working life has entered a new era

“Farewell BC (before coronavirus). Welcome AD (after domestication)”

From Thomas Harrison: Covid-19: A Career Defining Pandemic

“The traditional playbook is history. A list of 30 observations and truths to guide leaders and their businesses in the difficult days, weeks and months ahead.”

From Blair Sheppard, Daria Zarubina, and Alexis Jenkins: Adapting to a new world

“Facing the challenges of the post-COVID-19 landscape.”

From Blair Sheppard: A 4-step guide to thriving in the post-COVID-19 workplace

“The pandemic has accelerated the need to ensure that people around the globe have the necessary technology skills and access to do their jobs. Even as China shows signs of recovery and the number of new daily infections worldwide appears to have stabilized, the US has seen an unprecedented number of people file for unemployment, and 57% of Americans surveyed recently report feeling worried about losing their jobs.”

From Judy Sims: The Great Reboot Is Coming. Here Are 10 Questions to Help You Get Ready.

“But now, we’re emerging. We’re not quite certain what we’re emerging into, but we know it will be different from what was. I call these next times The Great Reboot.”

Every Monday, I do a blog post about business reading and business books. Follow this link to my review of The Journey of Not Knowing.
