Let’s start by stating the obvious: 2020 has so far been a year of great challenge and disruption. And the implications of this on almost every area of our lives have been felt widely; not least in our roles, workplaces and on how we lead ourselves and others.
The phrase ‘new normal’ has been overused far too many times, but there has been a shift, or more precisely a jolt, to a new way of working.
So how has this changed the priorities for leadership? What are the core leadership traits we should hold on to during this time of transition and what are the new ones that we must rapidly cultivate, as we transcend from a crisis management mindset to a more creative and innovative one to survive the brutal short term challenges ahead in order to thrive in the long run?
Objectives and key points:
- How leadership and wellbeing are closely linked – and why this matters even more now
- Communicating with transparency and empathy in turbulent times – the two most important aspects to this
- Lessons in leadership from the New Zealand response
- Why it is critical to develop leadership skills in the digital era
- Why leadership and learning are over complicated, and what this now needs to look like in the new world of work
- We have experienced a new business model and work mobilisation: what must we now do to build on that?
