What is compassionate leadership and how can it equip you to successfully navigate a crisis? What is the benefit to you and what can it bring to your team?

Join our webinar, 'Leading in Uncertainty: The Strength of Compassion', on Thursday 18th June 2020 to gain practical guidance rooted in academic study that you can implement in your leadership practice now.

“Leaders who use moments of adversity to find new and creative ways to achieve goals are more successful, more often.”

The pressures of working in isolation, closing your screen after a call and feeling dislocated and disconnected are common experiences. Compassionate leadership enables you to harness the shared experience of successfully navigating uncertainty to build stronger more resilient teams. As we move through this crisis, emotionally smart skills are key for organisations to not only increase productivity but are also essential in strengthening your culture for years to come.

  • Advance your understanding of leadership strategy
  • Learn practical tips from a globally renowned academic in leadership
  • Take the opportunity to have your questions answered in an interactive Q&A.
