Responding to COVID-19

We’re continuing to support all our clients during these uncertain times, as they navigate through the various challenges facing their organisations. Generally our work is about supporting people to take on new challenges and building the capability to lead when you don’t know the answer - and through this crisis we’re enabling our clients to do this from a place of care. Something is happening during these times that resonates with us on a deeply human level. It has made us realise how closely we are all connected and how new levels of trust, empathy and caring for one another must be part of how we organise ourselves moving forwards.

We’ve been gathering learnings, building on our experience and we’d be happy to share these with you. We are supporting many other leaders as they think through how to ‘re-generate’ their businesses and create the next version of themselves based on what matters most.               

Over the next few weeks you will see our COVID-19 Resource Centre on Our Insights page offering our latest learnings and thinking. If you’d like to explore our approach further, we’d be happy to have an informal chat.

Stay safe, The WhyNot Team
