Leading Through Challenging Times

Indian businesses fear the second wave of the COVID pandemic could set back the gains made by the Indian economy in the last two quarters following the ending of the lockdown measures imposed during 2020. Considering that the impact of first wave was already in a negative way, businesses are worried about what the economy would look like in a few years going forward. At the moment we are in a receding COVID tide but the arrival of the third wave cannot be ruled out. Businesses are looking at what the Government does to bring the healthcare crisis under control.

So what are the challenges of leading through these difficult times? What has changed and what is set to change? How do businesses manage their employees, and keep them engaged and productive? To discuss these and other leadership challenges we have invited Mr. Vivek Yadav, Business Head and SVP, Havells India Ltd to our Leadership Studio today.
