In a recent report McKinsey states that uncertainty is toxic for our economic recovery. They conclude:
”The objective now must be to crush uncertainty as soon as possible. As we have seen in previous crises, when uncertainty subsides, confidence returns and economic recovery unlocks—and the COVID-19 crisis has created the highest level of uncertainty in 35 years.”
But is that really what we want – to crush uncertainty? Is it even possible?
Or should we rather think of “the highest level of uncertainty in 35 years” as a unique opportunity to redefine the way we deal with uncertainty in our companies and communities?
I would love to hear your thoughts on my new article, What McKinsey gets wrong about uncertainty on LinkedIn.
