LEADERSHIP IN A TIME OF CRISIS: The Way Forward in a Changed World

A must-have guide, written for leaders in the age of COVID-19.


Introducing Leadership in a Time of Crisis, a leadership guide written by and for leaders looking to rise to the challenge of the COVID-19 public health and economic crisis, featuring a chapter from Jennifer McCollum, CEO of Linkage.

The business world as we knew it will never be the same again. And in this time of crisis, leaders are looking for the best guidance and direction they can find.

Leadership in a Time of Crisis offers a wide range of thought on the present COVID-19 pandemic from some of the world’s most effective consultants in all areas of employee and customer growth and engagement—considering the ramifications on people, on the healthcare system, on local, national and global economies, and on our businesses.


This must-have leadership guide features thirty-seven contributing authors spanning industries and specialties. All members of Marshall Goldsmith’s 100 Coaches non-profit organization, they began to meet daily in early March 2020 to share best practices and dialogue about the critical dilemmas facing leaders around the world. Each contributor believes that by supporting the growth and development of leaders in all areas, we can create more value in the companies we serve and better lives for the people with whom we work and the communities in which we live.
