A clip for my Notable Keynotes – Lessons in Leadership For Our Eventual Post-Pandemic Recovery series – about the time the WSJ – the Wall Street Journal – had me in for a talk to senior business leaders.
The context? The psychological impact of the great economic meltdown of 2008-2009 was still a challenge to be dealt with ; the mindset of many people was far too focused on the negativity around them rather than the positivity that exists in aligning to what comes next.
I took a look at that issue in my short talk and time on a panel discussion, bringing up the point of ‘aggressive indecision‘ which seems to envelop the mindset of such leaders. I coined that phrase way back in 2001 in my weekly column in the Globe and Mail, a national Canadian newspaper that featured my tech column for 5 years.
Think about that phrase – it might be the foundation of your future-alignment (or lack thereof) at this very moment as we eventually make our way into a post-pandemic world.
