Human quality is not about being good under normal circumstances!

Ethics Leadership Disruption 

Quality is not only applicable to products or services, but it is also relevant to us humans and individuals. How people, governments, and businesses have been responding to the current crisis of COVID-19 has been very revealing. Especially the strengths as well as flaws in human behavior. Right from toilet paper brawls, to school closing decisions, to work-from-home challenges, to 10% product discounts amidst of all this, each of this has exposed once again — we humans are still not as advanced as we think, and many of us still have questionable quality!
