“What we have learned during the quarantine is that schools are incredibly important in our society, as a community. The social nature of learning is significant. The interaction between learners and teachers is fundamentally important. Now it’s time to focus on kindness, compassion, empathy, honesty, transparency, and positive attitude”, highlighted Rachel Caldwell, Director at Pechersk School International, for our #LeadershipInTimesOfCrisis.

“In times of crisis, when the situation changes daily, people need to reduce uncertainty and concerns to feel secure. Thus, leadership becomes vital during such times,” Ago Vilu, Managing Partner at PwC Ukraine, for our #LeadershipInTimesOfCrisis. Ago believes that in the future, it will be a combination of the old world and the new world. We cannot wholly go online, as face-to-face communication has a strong emotional basis that cannot be replaced virtually.

We are in the middle of something unique, something we have not faced before. Some people could call it a crisis, Bogdan Khoroshchak, Country General Manager at IBM Ukraine, prefers to call it a challenge: “This challenge puts on our shoulders exciting things: we know that the economy and the way of work will change. And it is totally to us to define this new economy in which we will appear rather sooner than later. This time is all about people, both in our team and on our client’s side. These challenging times are the topic of effectiveness and how we, as leaders, help our teams to succeed and reach goals.” Many thanks to Bogdan for inspiring #LeadershipInTimesOfCrisis interview.
