Within every firm, every leader (edge or center) faces challenges every day. Sitting here in 2020 as I write this book, the challenges presented by COVID-19 are seismic in terms of impact as well as being totally unanticipated. COVID-19 has forced firm leaders to examine their own firm down to its very core and to make decisions that challenged their leadership in ways never imagined.
COVID-19 has also resulted in new leaders emerging from the chaos of the pandemic to rise to a level of Edge leadership. Edge leaders will see the opportunities created by COVID-19 while center leaders will only see the challenges. Edge leaders will examine every challenge and find the opportunity making the firm stronger as a result.
