The Corona Virus has had a dramatic impact on how we do business.  Many organisations have been forced to reconsider their working arrangements and how they perform their business.  Large components of the workforce have been forced to work from home and adopt virtual ways of working.  For some individuals this represents a minor shift, but for others it will dramatically impact their working relationships, workplace dynamics and leadership focus.  

One thing is for sure, workplace teams will need to think about what they need to be doing differently to enable and maintain high performance in this new world that we find ourselves in.  What will be the new performance requirements in the virtual world, where teams are experiencing disruption, uncertainty and new challenges on a daily basis?

This workshop has been specifically customised and contextualised to support leaders through the Covid-19 crisis.  Leaders will come away with clear and focused strategies to develop and lead their teams amidst the uncertainty and establish critical competencies that will enable performance now and well into the future.
