'How to Lead in a Crisis' is an engaging TED talk by leadership expert Amy C. Edmondson. The talk is part of The Way We Work, the platform's video series highlighting inspirational tips from some of the world's top business leaders. The series is sponsored by Dropbox and profiles ways to adapt in our ever-changing times -- something Edmondson zeroes in on.
The leadership expert explains how past keys to success such as years of experience and access to reliable data are not always the keys to success during times of uncertainty and upheaval that are unprecedented and out of our control.
Naming "humility, transparency and urgency" as the keys to successful growth within an organization of any size, Amy C. Edmondson encourages leaders to think on their feet and act fast amid times of uncertainty, something many organizations can relate to during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic where adapting to change has been a saving grace for many.
