Moments of disruption like these are never without precedent. There are distinct historical patterns at work over the last three centuries that show plenty of context for what we’re going through now and what’s to come in the near future. We are living in a series of repetitive cycles, known as resets, that readjust the operating system of our very world.

While they are complex, they are still predictable in their outcome.

In this virtual presentation, Leonard Brody can help you shift your perspective on what we’re going through as a society and in the business sector and understand that the success stories in the coming years will be tied to leaders who master these cycles and are prepared to bounce back. He’ll help you and your organization prepare to lean into the inevitability of a coming recovery. We know factually that periods of upheaval are always followed by economic growth. In business, what changes are permanent and what is only short-term? How can we harness that? And how can we adjust the frameworks in which we currently operate to move smoothly and smartly into the future ahead? Brody will answer these questions and more, illuminating the big picture with proven research, experience, and insights.

In this presentation you will learn:

  • How to identify the historical cycles taking place over the past 350 years that demonstrate how things post-COVID-19 will shake out.
  • How to embrace these patterns, adapt to their impact, and lead through this cycle with confidence and clear perspective.
  • About the key behavioural shifts that will remain after the pandemic and what changes are likely to be only temporary.
  • Best practices of companies that thrive in these reset moments and are built to bounce back.
