I recently spoke to the Association of Corporate Counsels on the topic of how to develop and advance an environmental, social and governance (ESG) program. ESG is one of the hottest topics for lawyers and C-suite leaders right now, with investors and employees pushing organizations to become better corporate citizens in the broadest possible sense.

The Back to Work Dilemma: Should We Stay or Should We Go?

There’s nothing like a global pandemic to accelerate change in the workplace. COVID-19 forced companies and other organizations to quickly put infrastructure in place for working from anywhere (WFA). While many of these organizations have been pleasantly surprised that technology has made WFA easier than they thought, there remains little consensus around what should happen next with returning employees to the workplace.

Engaging Employees in Your New Business Strategy

How we interact with others has changed dramatically since the onset of Covid-19. Holiday gatherings are occurring on Zoom, weddings and graduations are limited to immediate family only, and texting has replaced dinners out with our best friends. On the work front, for most employees, there are no in-person team meetings, town halls or catch ups in the hallways. Days are now filled with virtual sessions facilitated by Zoom, Microsoft Teams and WebEx and collaboration tools like Slack, InVision, GitHub and others. Instead of being stuck in conference rooms, we’re glued to the computer.

Envisioning a different world beyond the virus

Someway, somehow the Human SARS coronavirus (aka Covid-19) will eventually take its place on the ash heap of history. Maybe it will be through modified behaviors, a scientific miracle, or some astonishing intervention by Nature, but we will prevail – and we will all have changed as a result. As we mend grieving lives, as society returns to more normal rhythms, and as we get back to work to restore a devastated global economy, how leaders lead and how they communicate will need to change as well.

Communications 101 with Taylor Swift

I’ve worked in many different sectors through the course of my career, but none of them has given me a greater ability to navigate crisis and complex issues than my time in the music industry. The many years I spent working at the intersection of business and popular music were better than any degree I could have studied for, and provided me with knowledge and real-life experience that I still use every single day in my professional life.
