1149: Daniel Burrus, Managing Uncertainty Caused By COVID-19
As the global pandemic continues to spread, both consumers and businesses now have a very different set of goals to what they had when they started 2020. As the world faces a period of uncertainty, businesses must strive to be significant, not successful. Helping customers rather than selling to them is the fresh approach that we all need.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a new level of uncertainty. But how can you or your business actively shape the future? My search for answers led me to the New York Times Bestselling Author and Technology futurist, Daniel Burrus. He told me, “If you look around, nobody’s moving or buying, and everybody is hurting. But this presents every business with an opportunity to help their customers and grow their brand by doing something extraordinary.”
In our podcast interview, Burrus advised we should all shift our focus to be a significant business and a significant leader. Success is all about you. Significance is about what you do for others.
