The mark of a successful organization is not whether it has problems, it’s whether it has the same problems as it did last year. When a crisis hits, we are forced to confront the truth about how our systems work (or doesn’t work). The places where things could be done better or more efficiently become glaringly obvious. When people and organizations shift their focus from problems to outcomes, something amazing happens within the culture of the workplace - and in people's lives. Leaders and teams co-create, engage, and collaborate. Change becomes the fuel that empowers innovation and a high performing business.

Instead, they created and innovated even during the most challenging of times.
