Crisis LeadershipIF EVER THERE WERE AN OPPORTUNE TIMEto study leadership it would be now, in the midst ofa pandemic. Company leaders have found themselves far outside of their comfort zones as theydeal with the dual crises of a novel coronavirusand the resulting economic recession. It has beena tumultuous time, yet, at least in our industry,they found their sea legs very quickly and beganto navigate.
This issue, it could be said, is a recognition oftheir efforts and achievements not only in the past year but within the past twomonths as well.
In our article on page 25, “A Leader’s Pandemic Playbook,” We take a lookat the character traits and—let’s face it—survival tactics that these men andwomen have and are deploying to bring their companies and employees to safeshores.
In this issue we also present you with our annual selection of Best Bosses. It isa timely look at the commercial real estate executives that we feel have delivered110% for their companies, workers and customers.
In related coverage, please take a look at our nominees for Best Places toWork. Companies are more than the four walls of an office; they are an amalgamation of corporate culture, executive attitudes and workplace policies amongother factors—with leaders setting the tone for this mix.
This is also the issue for the next in our Influencer series, this time focusing onlenders. They, too, have their own set of responsibilities now, as the uncertaintyaround the economy makes their jobs that much more difficult.
In our article “Is the CRE Finance Revolution Over Already?” on page 12, weexamine the innovation that was underway before COVID- 19—and what thatinnovation is morphing into as the pandemic rages on.
We hope you enjoy that issue—and more importantly, we hope you continueto stay safe during these unique times.
