Daimler Trucks & Buses starts the second season of the podcast Transportation Matters by its CEO Martin Daum – and that is in very unusual times. This is reflected in the first episode, as he discusses the topic leadership in turbulent times with his guest Daniel Harkavy – a US leadership-expert and bestselling author.

How does the current crisis affect the role of leaders and their leadership behaviour? How can leaders navigate their people through difficult times in the best possible way? From emotionally adjusting to this new situation to concrete advice and takeaways, the two spin a highly relevant discussion in a time when leadership is more crucial than ever.

With his experience from coaching top managers of global companies like Nike, Pfizer, Daimler and many others, Daniel Harkavy says: “We are in the middle of a perfect storm […] I think leaders need to develop muscle in how they think” – a thought Harkavy develops in the course of the conversation and breaks it down into concrete advice and takeaways.
