Creating Trust and Communicating Vision in a Digitally Disruptive World
In my global research and advisory work, I am observing organizations that are struggling to effectively prepare for and react to any number of new crises, whether these are of their own or others’ doing. Some of these struggles can be traced back to deficiencies of preparation, a lack of planning, inability to adopt or adapt new methods, and lack of understanding how important their role is in shifting employee culture. I will present several new practices and theories that I have developed that have been demonstrated in practice and can be applied across a wide range of contexts.
