Leadership in a Crisis is an online programme that helps identify the key stakeholders in an organisation's ecosystem, their critical challenges in a crisis situation and its implications for messaging and actions. The programme articulates the key requirements for effective leadership in a mission control room during a crisis, and more importantly highlights the necessity of a leadership mindset to extend beyond the immediacy of the crisis to the necessity of imagining a new world of possibilities for the leader and their organisation post-crisis.
The programme leverages a ground breaking new method of strategic thinking called the ‘Phoenix Encounter’, developed by INSEAD Professors Ian Woodward, Paddy Padmanabhan and Sameer Hasija, in collaboration with internationally renowned business thought leader Ram Charan.
The Programme is designed for:
Secure a deep relationship with your stakeholders
Secure your mission's leaders, teams and people
Secure your lines of effective engagement
Secure your mission, purpose and goals
Secure your mission’s cash and business activities
Secure your post-crisis surge
Over the course of three weeks, you will experience an elevation of the leadership mindset beyond the immediacy of the crisis to the necessity of imagining a new world of possibilities for the leader and their organisation post-crisis, one that recognises that a crisis changes mindsets and behaviours of an organisation’s ecosystem.
