4 common ways leaders fail to learn from a crisis
20 Sep 2022
Crises have a habit of creeping up on us. They can take many forms–supply chain issues, inflation, disruptions to the labor force, technology failure, even a global health pandemic–and often feel like they are arriving out of the blue. But crises are inevitable, and they happen over and over again.
The good news is that you can prepare for a crisis just as you would for anything else. Leaders and organizations that take the time to prepare for uncertainty through scenario-planning, keeping bi-lateral lines of communication open, and building diverse teams before a crisis hits, should weather it relatively well. Those who embrace the learning opportunities that crises also bring, will fare better still–avoiding exposure to the same or similar risks further down the line.
