Great leadership seems easy when things are good and everybody's happy. When times grow tough, however, a leader's true colors are revealed. Leading through hard times requires resilience and more. There are many things you need to do as a leader: strategize, build relationships, influence others, and get results. But when times are tough, what does your team need from you?
Leading through challenges with resilience allows you to do more than survive in the short-term; it sets you and your team up for success so that they can ultimately thrive. Regardless of your title or industry, one thing is certain: At some point, your team or organization will face adversity. The key to weathering these inevitable storms.
One of the greatest stories of leadership in difficult time is Winston Churchill during World War II and the bombing of London. As the city was bombed consecutively for 7 nights Churchill, declared, “We will never surrender.” Every time he was seen in public, he would hold up his hand in a victory symbol, with the now famous “V”. People were so lifted up, they began to chip in, care for their neighbors and learn how to nurse and care for people.
This webinar is designed to address the many complexities of leading during times of crisis. 2020 was an unprecedented year and organizations of all types struggled to balance the proper way to lead their people and strategize their business.
