Earlier this year, Entromy partnered with Kotter to understand how organizations were responding to the rapid economic and social disruptions caused by COVID-19. The COVID-19 Leadership Report combines the perspectives of over 850 executives, managers, and frontline employees to understand the key challenges and offer insights to senior leaders.
“Top-level executives have a significantly more positive outlook about their organizations after COVID-19; they are 9% more confident than middle management and 21% more confident than junior employees and individual contributors.”
• Only 19% of respondents believe activity will go back to normal after quarantine mandates end and that we will return to a state of social and economic normalcy.
• Lower levels of confidence were reported among employees when they experienced greater amounts of change.
• Since confidence levels may remain shaky as the duration of quarantine extends past expectations, leaders should focus on building trust in this turbulent time.
There’s a science to change, and Kotter pioneered it. Our consultants work with organizations around the world to solve business problems faster, innovate, drive performance, rise to the challenge created by a faster-moving world, and create momentum for the future.
