ACTIONABLE ADVICE FOR SERIOUS TIMES

GEOFF COLVIN spoke virtually to Global Leaders Organization in July. His practical and actionable advice for leaders is stunningly great!

Geoff Colvin's contention is that someone is always going to win in critical times. Why not you, he asks?

Here are five video excerpts from the Global Leaders Organization event with Geoff offering great lessons for leaders looking to exit this crisis stronger than they were  before it began.

Geoff reveals how the most successful leaders are confronting and adapting to this business environment right now. Winning in business today demands extraordinary leadership acting on the best intelligence it can find.
