Resilient leaders change organizational mindsets, navigate uncertainty, and invest in building trust to develop a playbook recovery that provides strong support. the foundation of the post-COVID future.
While organizations used to describe agile change as “fixing the machine in flight”, the COVID-19 pandemic has recently rewritten the rules of upheaval. Those of us who lead any organization – from companies to institutions to our own families – don’t put airplanes in the air, we build them. Times like these require leaders who are resilient in the face of dramatic uncertainty.
The first article in this series describes the fundamentals leaders need to effectively navigate a crisis.

Resilient leaders are defined first by five core qualities of who they are, and then by what they do within three critical time frames: respond, recover, and thrive.
As we move into the recovery phase of a crisis, resilient leaders recognize and empower their team’s critical shift away from a “today” and “tomorrow” mindset. They see that major markets related to COVID-19 and social change are creating huge uncertainties that must be navigated—and opportunities for growth and change must be seized. In the midst of this uncertainty, flexible leadership requires a larger following, which must be nurtured and catalyzed by building greater trust. And agile leaders start by anticipating what success will look like at the end of the boom—how the business will evolve over the long term—and then guide their team to develop a series of agile sprints based on those results.
Flexibility is not a goal; it’s a way of being. A “resilient organization” is not only about being able to return to where it was before the crisis. Instead, a truly resilient organization is one that has changed, building attitudes, beliefs, agility, and structures into its DNA that allow it to not only recover, but to move forward quickly.

In this spirit, resilient leaders must shift their team’s mindset from “today” to “tomorrow,” which involves several changes that have important implications on the road to recovery. Specifically, as shown in Figure 1:
