The past two decades have witnessed major crises affecting the whole country - 9/11, the 2008 global financial crisis, and the most recent one being the COVID-19 pandemic. Business leaders are faced with the challenge to rise up and lead optimistically during this period of uncertainty over everything that’s going on (which is not an easy feat) towards the future where things will be back to normal.
In this episode, we have Angie Simon, President of Western Allied Mechanical. She shares with us how she is navigating through this crisis as a leader and how they are addressing the issues regarding the changes that they have to implement in a period like this. Our discussion is one that provides encouragement especially because it’s evident how she is leading her company optimistically even in the midst of this crisis.
If you’re looking for that 1% inspiration to remain positive and lead optimistically, I highly recommend that you tune in to this episode.
