Delighted to have our founder, Nick Bradley featured in the York Press today with ideas to help you and your business survive through the Convid-19 pandemic.
Nick Bradley, York-based CEO and founder of Mandala Leaders
“I usually work in London as an executive coach helping leaders. The first impact for me was a Cabinet Office project shutting down for 12 weeks but made me think to plan three months ahead and not just the initial three weeks of shutdown.

Mandala Leaders is a face-to-face business but I had no choice but to pivot into an online business and I immediately offered my digital products free to any other business leaders who would benefit.
Leading a business with furloughed workers or home working is an even lonelier place to lead than usual so I created an online community of local business leaders who could communicate and support each other.
I’ve also been diligent in creating a structured day with work ending so that I can take my daily exercise, creating balance. I have also volunteered for the NHS and make calls to people who are self-isolating and offering help. I believe that structured days, more exercise and helping others keeping will be positive in the long term.”
