Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, leaders in city government and large global organisations are operating in an environment of uncertainty and speed to make decisions that will likely have weighty consequences down the road. What if we could listen in to a handful of senior decision-makers who are carrying this large responsibility, as they confront this crisis, day by day? What might we learn from them that could be of value to a wider audience of people struggling – like them - to navigate these waters?

Through the ‘Resilient Leadership’ podcast, Seth Schultz and Peter Willis discuss the insights we’re gaining through weekly interviews from the same ten such decision-makers every week – five in leadership positions in large globally significant corporations, and five Chief Resilience Officers of a major city in Europe, Africa, India, Brazil and the US.
