It is easy to run a successful business or organisation when times are good, the economy is expanding and people feel confident about the future. Even poorly led and badly managed companies can survive, and can even prosper, as the economy gathers pace and grows without any effort on their part. Customer relationships, quality, value for money, employee engagement all seem to matter less, though it is true that organisations that do these things well, tend to do better over time than their rivals who ignore or put less value on them.
It is entirely different when the economy is in crisis, people are fearful for their jobs, and feel they have less money to spend.
in his seminar "Building Resilience for Optimum Performance in Challenging Times" Dr Michael Pearn will identify the new leadership requirements for executives abd managers and strategies for developing resilience in the current environment.

Michael Pearn on Leadership
This is a time when people in leadership roles, (organisational, functional, departmental, or of direct and indirect teams), need to be at their best as leaders. This is a time when the courage to do what is right, to balance the needs of the present with a the longer term view, to be as open and as honest as possible, to be a role model to encourage others, and to be disciplined, fair, and supportive all become more critical.
What characteristics should we be looking for in organisational leaders in today's challenging times? Michael Pearn suggests ten key requirements:
1. The courage to say and do the right things
2. Openness, Honesty, Integrity
4. Objective, factual, logical decision making
5. Perspective-taking (multiple viewpoints, long and short-term)
6. Social intelligence
7. Emotional intelligence
8. Empowerment and support
9. Powerful team building
