Innovation Leadership: Leading Through Crisis (New**)
Crisis is inevitable, and organisations are well advised to be prepared. The single best way to be prepared for a crisis is to have a leader who is effective at handling crises when they occur. On good days, a leader’s job is simple: Keep the company running, employees productive, and customers happy. However, not all days are the same.
In order to navigate the storm, there are three steps:
Survival: Practical things to say and do;
Adjust to the New Midterm: Rethinking business models;
Adjust to the New Long Term Reality: Making flexible and collaborative decisions about the future.
Alex shares the 5 Innovation Leadership skills required to not only navigate crisis, but to stay ahead of the change curve, adapt, and innovate for business growth and sustainability.
Key Take Home Value:
Reduced risk because of swift actions.
In addressing crisis, new opportunities will emerge that will provide new business growth.
Employee trust increases because of leadership availability and visibility.
Customer loyalty grows through deliberate communication.
Bluer Than Indigo: A Transformational & Humane LeaderShift
At the heart of humane leadership is the notion of balance and the ability to create harmony in relationship with the self and others. That balancing act makes leadership a challenging activity. Increasingly, a major task leaders must accomplish is to create some sense of order and meaning out of chaos, both for themselves and for those they lead without succumbing to the temptation of premature closure and rigid thinking as a defence against the anxiety of uncertainty. To have something that is “bluer than indigo” is rare and truly remarkable. Implicit in this description is that this sort of leader will always be able to recognise and work to help their pupil fulfil their fullest potential. That means the leader needs to be other-oriented, attuned to the needs of those around them and able to keep their implicit biases and ego in check. This speaks also to the heart of transformational leadership at an individual and business level.
Key Take Home Value:
Delegates improve their communication skills, organisational culture, social competence, client relations, teamwork, and overall a significant shift in thinking and productivity.
Future Proof Your Leadership
Everyone is talking about future proofing their business, and yet, the people to make decisions, create the environment, and drive change are leaders. So, it is even more critical for all leaders to develop self-leadership competencies. These include INTENTION, INFLUENCE, and IMPACT. To realise this, much emphasis must be placed on understanding the difference between command and inspirational leadership, improving accountability, commitment, responsibility, and exponential thinking and agility.
Key Take Home Value:
Delegates leave understanding the required leadership competencies, key decisions which need to be made, and how to steer the business in the direction of profit and growth.
Built To Adapt: Better Everyday (new**)
We can all agree that 2020 was a year that caused much anxiety, loss, and uncertainty. But it also proved that when people unite, a new resilient spirit can rise above the challenges and overcome difficulty, produce stellar results, and perform beyond expectation. General George Casey said “Clarity and simplicity are the antidotes to complexity and uncertainty.” Built To Adapt is about finding new clarity through humanity, emotional intelligence, and community. Humanity is born out of the heart’s revelation that another person is every bit as important as we are.
In building our capacity to adapt more readily to complexity and change, there are three practical solutions that can help:
CLARITY (Purpose > Plan > Responsibility)
ADAPTABILITY: The new competitive advantage
GRIT (Growth > Resilience > Instinct > Tenacity)
These are not mere conversations, but tangible personal development strategies that can help you all to navigate past the Covid-19 pandemic and other future crises.
Key Take Home Value:
Understanding change
Having more clarity to achieve success
Adaptability: the new competitive advantage
Grit for perseverance, courage, and resilience.
