Why are some leaders in high-stakes situations and crisis highly effective, while others disappoint, and some utterly fail? What is the difference? Why are some able to not only survive but thrive, even in tumult?
The answer is, that high-stakes leaders demonstrate three critical aspects that ensure they perform well in a crisis. The good news is that these three qualities can be strengthened, taught and honed in those who have a thirst to learn.
Listen as Dr. Linda Sharkey and Morag Barrett talk with Constance Dierickx about the insights from her new book High-Stakes Leadership, Leading Through Crisis with Courage, Judgment, and Fortitude. You’ll learn why leading is high-stakes – and why leaders who don’t know they are in high-stakes situations are at the most risk. Why courage, judgment and fortitude are the essential elements needed by leaders.
Constance specializes in working with organizations in high-stakes transitions, including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, CEO succession, strategic change, and crisis. Her clients include AAA, AT&T, Belk, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Cox Enterprises, DIRECTV, IBM, NextGear Capital, Olive Garden, and others. She has advised over 500 executives, on five continents in 28 industries.
