Leadership matters most during crisis, challenge, and change






Economic, geopolitical, workplace, and domestic crises are impacting your organization. Get the tools, techniques, and tactics you need to succeed!

Your organizations and teams face crises, challenges and changes every day. Internal issues such as leadership shifts, resignations, the loss of an important client, or the absence of a manager, and external factors such as the stock market roller coaster, supply chain delays, natural disasters, and inflation, and global unrest all contribute to increased uncertainty and decreased productivity.

Regardless of the origin of the crisis, the consequences can be catastrophic for the company, and can jeopardize its future. To effectively manage any type of crisis, leaders need to react quickly and take the right steps to get out of the turmoil.

Understanding Mary’s 6 stages of every crisis, challenge, or change and then applying Mary’s 5 steps to P.I.V.O.T. through it gives leaders a competitive advantage.
