Managing Turbulence in a Changing Environment

Turbulence is the new normal, and organisations and leaders need the tools and capability to successfully navigate this turbulence to survive. 

In the past 25 years in Australia, leaders have had to face the Asian Financial Crisis, 9-11, the Global Financial Crisis, and now COVID-19. To respond effectively to a crisis, organisations and leaders must have the right systems and behaviours in place before it occurs, but many fail to prepare adequately.

Managing Turbulence in a Changing Environment is a one-day course that explores the changing nature of business environments and the need to prepare for the unexpected. It will equip you with the analytical and planning tools to face crises head on.
