Thomas J. Giordano, Jr, Esq., founding partner of Pond Lehocky Giordano and Pond Lehocky Disability, contributed to Philadelphia Business Journal Leadership Trust expert panel last week for 15 Smart, Professional Ways to Reconnect in Times of Crisis.
Giordano shares that leaders should be honest and open. “Sometimes the hardest thing to do is take that next step to reconnect. You may feel bad about your lack of communication with your group of friends and colleagues in the past, but I feel that Covid-19 has allowed us all to get past any fear or uncertainty about how we will be treated or perceived if we can simply be honest and open about reconnecting and helping one another,” he contributes.
