Just keep swimming – and taking those bold leaps of growth

This spring has truly revealed that the unknown can rattle our reality very fast, also on a global scale. We have been shown yet again that we need to constantly be learning and substitute old truths with new facts.

And we have all learned a lot. Some companies have rapidly adapted, others are well into preparing how to make it work, others rolling with the new and accelerating and taking charge of the road to recovery.

Many still question what the long-term strategy will be in our new reality?

We trust that this uncertain future can be a better one. Whether surviving or thriving, we need to keep moving, keep developing ourselves, keep evolving and growing our organisations. We believe that collaboration and networks become even more important in finding a meaningful way forward.

We see that a few critical questions that are on the minds of many leaders right now are:

  • What effect has the latest events had on us, will we see a boost in building a more sustainable society around us?
  • Will sustainability be a more powerful driver of growth in the post-pandemic business environment?
  • What makes us as a company different, what is our advantage over our competitors on our way forward?
  • What are the most meaningful and valuable characteristics and skills of a leader? Has the list of priorities changed as a result of the latest events? Have my priorities changed?
  • As many of us are taking some time out during the summer, it offers the perfect opportunity to reflect, regroup and set your focus for the autumn. Below you will find some summer reading, our 6 most popular blogs.

We hope you will return after the summer recharged and prepared to meet the opportunities and challenges to come.

We wish you a truly relaxing summer filled with sunshine together with your loved ones.

With warmest regards

The team at HRM Partners and Hanken & SSE
