"2009 is authentically frightening, but it also has great potential to be a springboard year
Leaders must engage with chaotic global future forces and figure out how to make a better future. Certainly, the focus for many people in 2009 must be on holding the fort and surviving. But in every organization, there should be at least a small band of leaders with license to think about and plan for the future. 2009 is threatening, but it is also an ideal time to be looking ahead—beyond the current crises… Those organizations that do nothing but hunker down in this crisis will be way behind when things start getting better."
