The COVID-19 pandemic is the largest global health crisis that we have faced since World War II. The greatest challenge for organizations was to establish a clear vision for a quick change that needs to be shared with employees in a way that is both understandable and inspiring. The year 2020 is a time of global change where leaders need to fulfill the change management role with decisions made efficiently and sustainably. To understand the impact of the pandemic on organizations, researchers will need to trace leadership development and change management in the Post-COVID-19 Era. These studies will help to present the different types of leadership roles, policies, and strategies for business transformation in the time of crisis.
Global Perspectives on Change Management and Leadership in the Post-COVID-19 Era highlights the global perspectives of COVID-19s impact on change management and leadership and presents the lessons learned and opportunities afforded to promote new strategies and develop better practices within the field. The chapters report on case studies and real-life challenges faced by organizations in countries across the globe. This book covers important topics such as business sustainability, newfound challenges in the workplace, adaptive performance, success factors within organizations, corporate governance, and more. This is a valuable reference work for managers, executives, practitioners, researchers, students, academicians, stakeholders, business leaders, and anyone interested in leadership styles and the management of change during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
