CRISIS MAGNIFIES BOTH THE LIGHT AND SHADOW OF WHO WE ARE AS LEADERS. Crisis puts our character under the microscope of service: are we serving ourselves or others in this time of mind-bending and values-bending difficulty?
Current global crises reveal the shadows of human nature. Greed, self-interest, and corruption of a few powerful leaders caused grave consequences for many. Examining the shadow and light of leadership enables us to extract key lessons to create more sustainable, ethical, global leadership cultures. As 3M CEO George Buckley aptly reminds us “These are the times that separate good companies from the rest.”
