“Organizational crises present complex financial, social, and ethical issues and challenges as any emotionally charged situation that, once brought to public notice, invites negative stakeholder reaction and thereby has the potential to threaten the financial well-being, reputation, or survival of the firm or some portion thereof. A crisis occurs suddenly without warning and in an unprecedented manner, as with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Crises can overwhelm even the most experienced leaders, presenting unexpected, complex scenarios that develop rapidly and in several directions. Even when contingency plans have been prepared, those plans need to be adapted to rapidly changing circumstances. Fortunately, there are best practices tools, competencies to be adopted, and perspectives that leaders can use to steer their organizations during these difficult times, and these are found in Prof Sattar Bawany’s book ‘Leadership in Disruptive Times: Negotiating the New Balance’. The ” “𝑪.𝑹.𝑰.𝑺.𝑰.𝑺.” 𝑳𝒆𝒂𝒅𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒉𝒊𝒑 𝑴𝒐𝒅𝒆𝒍 provides businesses with the strategies to navigate the unprecedented challenges while operating in a global environment that is highly disruptive and increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA). A must-read for leaders across diverse organizations.”
