Overcoming Leadership Derailers in Times of Stress

man standing on rock triumphantly

In times of turbulence managing our stress can become overwhelming and in turn, our strengths can become our most significant liabilities. Self-confidence can morph into arrogance, skepticism quickly becomes cynicism and so on. We need proven tools now more than ever to help us self-manage and stay focused. This session is based on Robert Hogan’s decades of research on how leaders are likely to interpret the world and treat colleagues while under stress and pressure. In this session, you’ll self-assess yourself on 11 possible career-derailing behaviors and develop key risk mitigation actions.

Indicate your session date and time preference in the registration form below. 

Value Creation: Turning a Crisis into an Opportunity

This is an introductory session for managers and leaders with limited to no financial background. Participants in this session will gain exposure to the following concepts: the time value of money; the valuation principle; the framework to evaluate projects and how value is created. In addition, the session will provide a quick introduction to financial statements; cost-benefit analysis (NPV) and how changes in cash flows impact firm value.

Decision Making in a Crisis: How to Lead in Chaos

How do you make effective decisions in volatile situations?

Based on military and emergency room situations, this module will help you understand what leadership behaviors and specific actions should be employed during times of complexity, disorder and chaos. This session will provide you with a leadership readiness framework  that allows you to create situational sense-making from the data you have available and to turn that into an action-focused decision-making plan.

Deciphering Turbulence: Sources of Data and Insight

What do you turn data into action?

When we are experiencing turbulence, it is easy to lose track of what insight we need to make a good decision. It is important to ask good questions as well as progressing to where new insight and trusted intelligence is created. The Intelligence Gathering model shared in this course is derived from faculty research at MIT, UArizona and field observations at PWC. The focus of this model is learning to Monitor, Listen, Explore and Interact in order to select the best sources of data and insight while removing the "noise" common in times of turbulence. 

Indicate your session date and time preference in the registration form below. 

Participants who complete any four courses will receive a Leadership Readiness for Turbulent Times certificate.
