There is a popular English proverb: “cometh the hour, cometh the man,” the idea that right leaders will come to fore during times of uncertainty & crisis. Today this is indelibly linked to Churchill & his leadership during World War II. For many leaders across the world, “the hour” comes in times of market/business turmoil and now has come again with the COVID-19 pandemic. This talk not only grounds the topic in relevant research but uses international examples and cases to bring the topic ‘to life.’
