Future Ready Leaders: Agility with Khori Dastoor

September 16, 2020

DHR’s Future Ready Leaders series asks CEOs and other top leaders what it takes to be a successful leader now and as we prepare for the future.

Here, Khori Dastoor, General Director of Opera San José, talks about the importance of agility in moving her organization forward during the pandemic:

“What I have found is that my instincts are better than what I would have thought. And, trusting those instincts about the direction of our industry has proven successful for me. I think that we need to understand that there isn’t a rule book for this moment in time. There isn’t a degree or a training manual or certification that’s going to equip anyone, and that can be empowering. What I think is best for my business is what we’re going to do and we’re going to do it with confidence and optimism.”
