A crisis can strike a company anytime, anywhere. Leaders must face challenges that appear overnight and then rapidly evolve throughout the course of just one day.
The history of leadership has taught us many things but as our world changes, so too does our concept and understanding of leadership. Irrespective of how you define a leader, great leadership can prove to be a difference maker between success and failure.
Rhetoric has progressed from the 19th century belief that leadership is an inherited trait, to more a modern approach into how tasks, situations, organisations and environmental factors can influence great leadership.
It is now generally acknowledged that leadership is not innate, but rather it can be learned and developed.
With the world rapidly changing, and the COVID pandemic throwing every individual unique challenges, leaders have had to adjust to making urgent, honest, and iterative decisions, recognizing that mistakes will happen, but acknowledging them and correcting course, is much more important than assigning blame and, or, not making any decisions.
In addition, all great modern leaders need to be able to consider and value the myriad of diverse perspectives, cultures, people, values and behaviours within their workforce.
