Course description

Disaster changes the business environment. Almost overnight, leaders find themselves responding to crisis, revising their operations, and recalibrating their strategy. Moreover, just because the crisis ends, that doesn’t mean that the impact has gone away. Long-term success will not be measured by whether organizations are able to survive; it will be measured by their ability to link their resilience to their recovery. Strong leaders know how to use their team’s adaptive capabilities to fuel their exit strategy as they emerge from a crisis. They know how to guide individuals, teams, and their broader ecosystems to new levels of stability. They know how to prepare their business to compete in a post-crisis world; enabling them to quickly understand opportunities, develop a plan for temporary advantage and move to grab market share. They know how to communicate the future in a way that their crowd is eager to get to it. This program will provide practical ways for leaders to look up and ahead to envision their future recovery, and then chart a path to help get their organization and their ecosystem safely through it.
