COVID blew through all the inertia and it blew through the fear [of making deep changes]. It no longer mattered how you did it [increased flexibility], you just had to do it. It’s far less overwhelming for leaders to navigate these choppy waters if they remember that everything was already headed in this direction. So the focus can then be on how do they move forward instead of just resorting to the muscle memory of how we did things before.15 June 2022
