The New Zero

Thoughtful Crisis Leadership Beyond COVID

COVID has created a crisis environment in global economic security and personal safety never encountered by today’s leaders.
Neither September 11th nor The Great Recession of 2008 compare in depth or scope. For the first time both the global business landscape and social/societal norms have been forever altered.
There will be two groups of leaders emerging after the crisis: Those who proactively took control to build a new foundation of resilience and measurable growth, and those reluctantly dragged into a new business era without plan or clear perspective. Only one of these groups will survive and thrive.
 
Discussion highlights include:
 

> OVERCOMING A SCARCITY MINDSET

> MINIMIZING RISK BY TAKING CONTROL OF NARRATIVE

> STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT

> RESOURCE RE-ALLOCATION FOR NEW BUSINESS STRATEGIES

> TRANSITIONING FROM REACTIVE TO PROACTIVE MOMENTUM

> CONFIDENCE IN CRITICAL DECISIONS

> EMOTIONAL RELIEF AND INSPIRATION

Establish Your Legacy

Benefit from the lessons of someone who has worked thousands of hours directly with, advised, coached and mentored some of the highest performing corporate executives, entrepreneurs and change-makers in their respective fields.

Even the highest performing CEOs with a clear long-term vision of the legacy they desire to leave behind – the impact ultimately made on their business, community and the people most important in life – get overwhelmed with commitments that distract and ultimately endanger the prospect of achieving those goals.

From Wall Street to Hollywood to the board rooms of Fortune 100 firms the techniques and processes Damon employs are not academic – they have been tested and validated in action at the highest levels of industry.
