As the Covid-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on organisations globally, now more than ever, it has become imperative for leaders to possess qualities and expertise to lead organisations through crises. The pandemic has created opportunities for organisational innovation and creativity and leaders must be able to take advantage of these opportunities for survival.
In this session, Dominic will engage in a crisis management discourse that is informed by theory and practice. The importance of managing crisis in these unprecedented times of great risks and threats will be discussed.
