Joining Other Industry CEOs with Realistic Optimism

Joining Other Industry CEOs with Realistic Optimism

I was fortunate enough to be among a group of CEOs to be recently interviewed by Bitbean, an innovative company focused on helping businesses grow.

The interview centered on the impact of COVID-19 and how companies will rebound. In addition, each CEO was asked what steps others can take to sustain success and what books or podcasts have influenced us most.

The responses are now available in this inspiring 696-page eBook: CEOs Speak: Shaking Their Fists at Covid-19. It’s impressive compilation of thoughts, insights and lessons learned from CEOs across multiple vertical industries – from Agriculture and Consumer Products to Technology and Wholesale, and everything in between. Each CEO shares his or her own viewpoint, tips and top ways to move beyond COVID-19 to rebuild for a new tomorrow.

As the eBook editor and executive creative director Charlie Katz notes, the core thread offered by CEOs throughout the interviews is “Realistic Optimism.” I agree. This is a time to remain agile and embrace change – sometimes radical change. I truly enjoyed reading through each CEO’s perspective on this theme and learned many new concepts and visionary viewpoints.

You can view my contribution below as well as the full interview here:

As we look towards 2021, one thing we’ve learned from 2020 is clear: you never know what’s in store. By remaining agile, optimistic and realistic we can all move forward in a way that will have a positive effect on our employees, customers and the world. I for one am looking forward to what the new year has in store. Be kind, be safe and I’ll see you on the other side of 2020.
