The World Versus COVID: How to Win the Second Set

The World Versus COVID: How to Win the Second Set

Asian countries were the first hit by the global coronavirus pandemic, and are gradually bracing for the new normal that will emerge. We conducted interviews with 20 C-suite leaders across Asia from different countries, organizations, and industries to see how they’re preparing for the challenges ahead.

It seems that we’ve entered a 3-set match of COVID versus Humanity. Making a comeback in the second and third sets will requiring extreme resilience from organizations, societies, and nations. Asian CXOs unanimously agree that leadership will be the key differentiator between organizations that come out stronger post-COVID and those that will be unable to recover.

Our interviews uncovered 6 paradoxes around people and business that leaders in Asia and across the world must navigate, and the essential skills needed to win the “second set” against COVID.
