Organisations need to be strong in the face of continuing uncertainty with leaders ensuring their senior teams are fully aligned, Criticaleye reports
Strength in depth is an oft-quoted maxim for successful sports teams. It could equally be applied to organisations as they face the curve balls of an uncertain future. With the prospect of potential restructurings ahead, leaders must ensure their senior team is firmly aligned and that their organisation’s communications and culture are deep rooted and robust.
Featuring commentary from:
Matthew Blagg, CEO, Criticaleye: Strong leadership makes such a huge difference and if you haven't got it, it’s going to be really hard to take the business through the next 18 months.
Genevieve Glover, HRD, Barchester Healthcare: It is about being clear on what you're communicating, to who, when and why.
David Balls, Group HRD, Rank Group: You have to have very frank conversations at a leadership level. Protect your culture and manage [the crisis] in a very humane way.
Andy Young Managing Director, Talent & Organisation Practice Lead, Accenture: For business leaders, it’s a time to make the decisions that really matter because those that are made now will be the ones that shape the decade.
Nicky Pattimore, Chief People and Customer Officer, City & Guilds Group: You can bring in compassion to these difficult processes. Companies that haven’t done that will suffer in the long term.
