The Incredible Value of the Chief Human Resources Executive Emerging from Crisis: My Surprising Aha! Moment during a Conversation with Kim Perell
LinkedIn
August 14, 2020
My book was published on March 12th and as I moved to launch my executive leadership services business, COVID hit and my daughter was now with me at home. Fortunately, I had not launched beyond a website and social media accounts, so staying at home and transitioning to homeschooling was not practically difficult. The greater challenge was not being able to serve as a senior leader in the healthcare system, utilizing my 15 years of pandemic response and crisis leadership experience. The calls I received from organizations were heart-breaking and I was happy to help those leaders from the sidelines.
