This manual by Helen Battersby and Anne Stenbom offers a few additions to their 2019 work, The Discovery Prism, and sets up a framework for leading in crisis and managing change. The metaphoric prism has three “lenses” – “purpose and core values” (why and how), “mission and stakeholders” (what and who), and “vision” (where and when). The lenses’ intersection reveals your company’s “promises, strategy and legacy.” The prism’s energy helps firms become resilient and sustainable amid transformational change. And, the authors hint tantalizingly, they’ll also be stronger in the face of challenges like the coronavirus. While the authors’ advice is sound, note that they wrote the bulk of the book prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
