Dear fellow CEOs,
The global health tsunami has hit some of you fiercely at the very core of your business, impacting your employees, clients, suppliers and stakeholders. Wave after wave you try to sail course. Knowing at heart, you will have to redirect many more times.
In a crisis one recognizes a good CEO. We make decisions daily, but amid stress and anxiety, our emotional intelligence plays a crucial role.
Today, I see many of my colleagues CEOs doing a great job by focusing on solidarity, thereby rebuilding trust among their employees.
This is also confirmed as a striking result of a recent Essensys survey, conducted among companies in the service sector. 72% of the surveyed employees have confidence in their CEO and the way in which he/she deals with COVID-19.
Keep up the good work!
Michel Van Hemele, CEO Essensys
