In today’s show, I had the pleasure of speaking with Joshua Macht, the Executive Vice President, Product Innovation, and Group Publisher of the Harvard Business Review Group.
For most of us, the current crisis has put a halt to ‘business as usual’, and with companies and workplaces having to adapt quickly to the new landscape, we ask how going virtual may be changing the ways in which we do business, both in the short term, and in the future. We talk about the values and qualities that leaders will need to cultivate during this crisis, and how this may influence everything from the management of remote workers, to the ways in which companies fulfil their social responsibilities.
Finally, as we flock to virtual meetings and join our colleagues from our physical homes, we explore the blurring of the public vs private self, and how what we’re willing (or encouraged) to share may shed light on who we are, and the cultures of the businesses in which we work.
