Advancing Women in Business

Networking Event | Leading in times of Crisis


When tragedy strikes the workplace -- a fatal accident, violence, a robbery, or natural disaster -- all employees immediately look to its leadership for direction. How those
leaders respond when all eyes are upon them offers both tremendous opportunity and serious risk for the subsequent outcomes. Reactions to their leadership will echo throughout the organisation as others take their cue from the charted direction. Employees will go through the crisis with or
without leadership. Lead them!
