As we think about crisis leadership in 2020, I want to look back to the year 605 BC when the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar besieged Jerusalem and took as captives the best young men of the city, including Daniel.

How did Daniel respond to this massive disruption in his life? How did he lead his fellow Jewish captives in the midst of an unthinkable crisis? There are three things that Daniel did that we can learn from today.

  1. Build the Team
  2. Expect the Fire
  3. Keep the Faith
