How to Succeed in a Disruptive World

By Fabiola Maisonnier

The whole world has lived through many challenges since 2020 caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, leaders from different countries and businesses have been faced with making an unprecedented number of responses to their many challenges.

We have few good memories from 2020, and because of repeated lockdowns, curfews and downturn, people have been impacted, leading to discouragement and even mental health disorders.

Moreover, people stopped travelling and meeting friends. Restaurants, fitness centers, cinemas and theaters were closed. Businesses that depended on travel and people getting together were severely impacted, along with those businesses which were dependent on their workforce being 100% in the workplace with no ability for employees to work from home. And what about the companies that were not technologically prepared to have their employees work from home? It was a real disaster!

People then changed their ways of living and working. We avoided taking airplanes, and it was no longer possible to go out with friends to bars and restaurants. We are now spending more money on home improvement as we are working from home, eating at home and asking for food delivery, doing online shopping on a regular basis, as well as video streaming and gaming. As a consequence, a global recession was imminent because of these new habits and ways of living.

Even though vaccination has started in some countries in 2021, the pandemic is not over and we do not know how long the coronavirus immunity will last after receiving a vaccination. Risks remain as vaccines do not provide 100% protection against contracting COVID. Likewise, new coronavirus variants are emerging, and past infections may intensify the risk of another surge.

Therefore, we need to adapt, react and pivot with quick solutions. We cannot be waiting until the whole world has been vaccinated. The pandemic is still here, and we do not know for how much longer.

We need people who can manage and lead during these unprecedented times and during any other upcoming crisis. We need people who can encourage their communities, colleagues and families to be prepared for a world during and beyond COVID. We need pivotal leaders!

My session on 2 June, “The Pivotal Leader: How to Succeed in a Disruptive World,” will present key elements for adapting to crisis and using it as an opportunity to pivot and bring possibilities for bold new prospects for us to survive in a disruptive and changing world!

Interested in learning these elements to identify habits and elements that will help you surpass all obstacles to become an Influencer and a pivotal leader? Join me on 2 June for the PMI Virtual Experience Series 2021 when I will be answering your questions during my session, Session 302: The Pivotal Leader: How to Succeed in a Disruptive World.
