Current challenges for leaders

Many companies are not prepared for unexpected challenges and crises. In many organizations, linear, classical thinking prevails, both in terms of sales expectations and organisational design. Yet crises have become a recurring condition of business development and have 3 elements in common:

  •     the occured situation is often unexpected and unimaginable beforehand,
  •     the speed of change is enormous, and
  •     the impact is incredibly high.

What the Corona crisis shows above all is that it is not enough to focus on resilient leaders, as we have often done in recent years. The whole company has to be aligned regards to resilience: the organisation, the structure, the products, the partnerships and cooperations. It is precisely in a crisis that the pain points of a company become evident. Companies must therefore constantly expand the capability of being resilient, independent of external support services - this is what we call business resilience.
