Resilient Leadership - future proofing your organization

EGN Cross Functional Meeting

Today's organizations need to be future oriented and entrepreneurial focused to navigate the turbulent environment and be prepared for disruptive changes.  Leaders are no longer judged just from their performance during good times but rather how they display strength, courage and professionalism during trying times - transformation, leadership transition, high turnover, restructuring, poor performance or crisis.  Their team rely on them to be composed, remain focused and mostly to support and listen to their concerns, stand-up and be their voice.  Resilient leaders become the role model to build an agile and engaged organization that will remain loyal through good and bad times, fail fast and learn for it and continue to perform during adversity.
