Getting Ready for Tomorrow: A Conversation with Tony Vlahos


Even in ordinary times leaders are stressed. They are tasked with keeping employees motivated and focused, meeting organizational goals and a host of other responsibilities. That was before COVID-19.

Now, the challenges have only increased.

But as ExecuNet’s CMO told Dave Summers in an interview, “The structure doesn’t really change. The playing field might have changed, but the mission remains the same. If everyone understands what that is and they are excited about it, you just find ways to push forward creatively and get it done.”

ExecuNet is the inside place for executives to privately figure stuff out. –Tony Vlahos, ExecuNet Chief Marketing Officer

Getting things done was a theme of their talk. No matter the times, the crisis we’re faced with, there is business that needs to be attended to. How it gets done is open for discussion and can vary from company to company. Tony believes leaders must make some changes to their leadership styles to be successful in our present situation. Tony shares his views on the role of culture, the importance of decisiveness and the power of choice for leaders in these strange times.

To wrap up the interview, Dave asked Tony what he hopes people do not forget when the COVID-19 pandemic is behind us. Tony’s answer was powerful and touching. You will want to listen for the message he has for brands to take from this pandemic.
