Leading in a Time of Crisis: Global Warning

Leading in a Time of Crisis: Global Warning

For many global companies, the spread of COVID-19 has meant growing disruptions to global supply chains and major hits to their operations without a clear end in sight. Business leaders in China have been at the forefront of the response, and they face tough decisions that put their values and resolves to the test.  

Join us as we bring together two leaders in the Aspen Global Leadership Network, Jane Sun, CEO of, and Shane Tedjarati, President of Global High Growth Regions at Honeywell, to share how they are leading through this crisis and what we might learn from their experiences. What trade-offs do you make when trying to do what’s right for your consumers, employees, and communities? As markets falter and the impact grows, how do you stay focused? Can we find a silver lining in the gloom?
