Stillman School and Its Business Leadership Center Publish Second Issue of In the Lead Magazine, Leading Through Disruption  

In the Lead Magazine Cover, Leading Through DisruptionDisruption.
A scary word. A negative word. A constant fact of life.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a phenomenon experienced in high fidelity over the last 18 months!

The act of leading.
The qualities of a leader.
The demonstration of a behavior.
A constantly changing role in times of disruption?

In the second issue of In the Lead, we explore the topic of leadership in the face of disruption. What are the disruptions leaders face? How can they react? What have they learned? Can we apply these lessons in the future?

We bring you perspectives from the sports industry, food industry, higher education and a family business. We bring you perspectives on what the new generation entering the workforce sees as a differentiator in their undergraduate experience that makes them a better leader today. We also bring you highlights from "Future of Leadership: 2021," an annual survey focused on generating insight and foresight into the future of leadership from leaders of the future.

We are looking at a new beginning. In parts of the world, we seem to have turned the corner on the current disruption brought upon us by COVID-19, but we will feel the aftereffects for some time to come. We will experience new disruptions. But we know we can overcome any disruption. We can lead, better. We are In the Lead!
