Leadership In Extraordinary Times

This is a podcast series from Saïd Business School at Oxford University, presented by Peter Tufano, Peter Moores Dean and Professor of Finance. We will be sharing insights from our research and hearing from people on the frontlines. Leaders who are not just thinking about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, but dealing with it. This is not a time for business as usual. This is a time for business unusual. We need to think about the world in which we find ourselves, but also the world that we want to build when we emerge from this global health and economic crisis. It calls for leadership- a new kind of leadership in extraordinary times. From rapid innovation and the lessons from crisis management, to personal and professional wellbeing, to building resilience in public health, we want this series to help leaders respond to an unprecedented period of turmoil.
