AP Podcast – Episode 153: Josh and Matt share highlights from the Lessons from Executives e-book

COVID-19, Leadership, Podcast

We asked 25 attractions executives these questions:

  • When did you realize the pandemic was going to drastically impact your business and what were some of the first actions you took?
  • What do you wish you would have known on March 1st, and how would that have impacted your decisions and leadership during the shutdown?
  • How has the pandemic disrupted your philosophy for running a business that will change the way you lead in the future?

Their responses were raw, insightful, transparent, heartfelt, strategic, caring and downright inspiring. In this episode, Josh and Matt share some of the lessons and trends from the collective responses, as well as specific quotes and insight from individual leaders. Of course you will get a lot out of listening to this episode, but you will get EVEN MORE by downloading and reading the e-book yourself.
