In ways we’ve never experienced, leaders and teams are adapting to change with no playbook.
From essential businesses having to ramp up to emergency-level responsiveness to all the industries required to shut down with little warning or preparation, everyone has moved to problem-solving mode under extreme pressure. Our Team Clock consultants at the Center for Team Excellence are seeing the best and the worst in leaders.
