Being shut inside our homes and forced to adapt quickly to changing times has led many of us to try and figure out who we are. There's a grieving process that happens when such a drastic shift happens so fast, and we need to allow it to take place.
BUT, we cannot let it change who we are and how we operate. It's important to not ask "why is this happening to me" but rather "why is this happening for me".
Mike Robbins, former professional baseball player and author of the new book We're All in This Together: Creating a Team Culture of High Performance, Trust, and Belonging, joins Adam and Naresh to discuss these things, as well as how you can reposition your business to thrive when the virus ends, how to avoid losing your authentic self, and the two types of credibility we all need.
