Ed’s number one principle to navigating turbulent times is to act with authenticity and awareness. By understanding the possibility that “situations can change in minutes,” you can plan in a way that will build in flexibility – and ensure you are being honest with your team about the possibility of change. From business challenges, to reacting to the social issues of our time, authenticity is a critical trait for any leader.
“Even if the road ahead is uncertain,” as Ed puts it, “knowing your core strengths and acknowledging your weaknesses in a way that’s authentic to your company’s mission will go a long way.”
