Thank you for joining me for this series titled Stronger Through Adversity. The book by the same name is based on conversations I've had with more than 140 global leaders as they navigate through COVID-19.
In conversations with leaders like Hans Vestberg, CEO of Verizon, Brian Cornell, CEO of Target, Matt Renner, President of Microsoft, and Barbara Humpton, CEO of Siemens USA, there were several consistent themes about thoughtful communication. Here is a cliff notes version of some of them:
1) The most common mistake when it comes to messaging is to under-communicate especially during a crisis.
2) Frequent communication doesn't mean haphazard messaging, and it's possible to over communicate.
3) Words can inspire resilience or worsen the crisis.
