High-Stakes Leadership: Leading Through Crisis with Courage, Judgment, and Fortitude
“In business, you have to go beyond your own perception and ask yourself how you come to a conclusion. The stories we tell ourselves impact our behavior.”
If asked what separates great leaders from poor leaders, you could likely identify a long list of characteristics. It can be more challenging, however, to differentiate between good and great leaders. When things are going well, it is relatively easy to be a good or great leader. The true test of leadership is during times of uncertainty, when risk is high and circumstances are changing.
Why are some leaders highly effective during crisis, while others disappoint or fail? What allows some leaders to thrive though high-stakes challenges?
Join Morag Barrett as she speaks with Constance Dierickx, high-stakes transition expert and author of High-Stakes Leadership: Leading Through Crisis with Courage, Judgment, and Fortitude. She shares the three core characteristics of successful high-stake leaders you can incorporate into your leadership practice, as well as why high-stakes leadership requires both self-awareness and awareness of your business environment.
