Leading Through Uncertainty

Tuesday, 16 June 2020
12:00 - 13:00 GMT
£0-£45 + Fees

The Coronavirus pandemic has created intense uncertainty which will continue for some time. Leaders who understand the challenges of uncertainty will be able to lead their teams with more confidence, clarity and empathy through change.

Change of any kind disrupts the way you live or work and creates uncertainty as you find that new way. The focus of change tends to be on the operational and strategic direction and the emotional impact on people is often overlooked. Resistance to change is often ignored and it is usually an emotional response to being out of the comfort zone. Employees and teams need greater support through change to help them make sense of the impact.

In this masterclass we will explore how uncertainty is created, the emotional impact it has on you and your team and the leadership skills that help you lead through it with greater understanding.

What you will learn:

  • Understand the impact of disruptive change on your employees or team and find ways to engage and support people through the challenges of uncertainty. It explores the balance of results and relationships.

How you will benefit:

  • Understand what happens in uncertainty
  • Discover the different emotional responses to uncertainty
  • Know how to manage your emotions and support others in the team through disruptive change
  • Understand why anxiety is invoked in uncertainty and what to do about it
  • Learn 8 leadership skills to help the team communicate more effectively under pressure
