“One of the Epsicopal bishops in a learning community I lead shared this essay with me today. “Leading Beyond the Blizzard: Why Every Organization Is Now a Startup” is a provocative and helpful framing for the present moment and how to lead in it.

-Dwight Zscheile, VP of innovation, Luther Seminary

From the post:

“The novel coronavirus is not just something for leaders to ‘get through’ for a few days or weeks.
