What Matters Most? Six Priorities for CEOs in Turbulent Times
In the face of mounting economic troubles, Mckinsey, the global management consultancy firm, has identified six priorities for CEOs to focus on in order to ensure their businesses can survive and even thrive in this turbulent period. These priorities are resilience, courage, hatching new businesses, technology, net zero, and rebuilding the employee experience. Resilience is essential for companies to be able to handle volatile and disruptive conditions, while courage is needed to pursue the upside while managing the downside. Businesses should also focus on hatching new businesses in green technologies, as well as mastering tech trends and the net zero transition. Lastly, CEOs need to rebuild the employee experience to retain talent and provide incentives for employees to come back to the office. By focusing on these six priorities, CEOs can ensure their businesses are well positioned for long-term success.

A Defining Moment: How Europe’s CEOs Can Build Resilience to Grow in Today’s Economic Maelstrom
This Mckinsey report focuses in on Europe.
In the face of overlapping disruptions and a complex European situation, business leaders are being tested like never before. McKinsey research has found that resilient companies not only perform better than their peers through a downturn and recovery but also accelerate into the new reality, leaving peers further behind. To build the resilience required to not just survive but thrive, leaders must assess their company's response, foresight, and adaptation capabilities and structure their resilience agenda across six enterprise dimensions. They must also make faster and harder moves in productivity, create more operational and financial optionality in their balance sheets, and act swiftly on divestments in the downturn phase of disruption and on acquisitions at the inflection point of recovery. By putting these practices into action, companies can make a crucial pivot to accelerate into new realities and emerge from the crisis stronger than before.
