REDISCOVERING FRACTIONAL LEADERSHIP IN RESPONSE TO CRISIS
Forbes - June 2020
"A fractional leader brings more objectivity — a fresher, outside perspective — to the table with regards to their subject matter expertise and experience managing and leading teams within different company cultures. This leader also has a unique opportunity to challenge the status quo on how things have been done, in addition to the often-larger amount of scalability experience they come with from an operational and financial perspective."
