Corporate leaders need to be prepared for any crisis and have a plan in place to act quickly, decisively, and empathetically. In Culture Ignited: 5 Disciplines for Adaptive Leadership, culture change strategist Jason Richmond and coauthors Jeanne Kerr and Malcolm J. Nicholl reveal how companies whose leaders ignite their culture are able to weather any storm and get ahead of the competition.
Based on hands-on experience helping senior corporate executives navigate the turbulence of the 2020-2021 pandemic, the authors distill their findings into five key disciplines.
They share how to:
- Inspire and communicate a shared purpose
- Build trust and authenticity
- Hone your performance management skills
- Develop your talent
- Create belonging through diversity and inclusion.
The authors also explore how a crisis can be turned into opportunity and how to lead an organization in overcoming challenges never taught in business school.
