Your Leadership Abilities Will Be Tested Now More than Ever!

Economic turbulence has arrived with a vengeance. Companies that face this global crisis head-on are the ones that will be left standing when the dust clears.

Preparing your organization to survive a prolonged period of slow growth or even contraction is one of the most difficult tasks that will ever confront management. Leaders must recognize the new reality confronting their companies and take the necessary steps to shore up the company and weather the storm.

In this Webcast, renowned consultant Ram Charan traces the causes of this crisis and offers clear guidelines to help you rise to the challenges you’re facing right now.

For a full hour he’ll examine the tools leaders and managers need to implement to prepare for and steer through these tough economic times and provide advice on how to seize the opportunities that invariably arise out of these difficulties.

What You Will Learn

Different times demand different solutions, and if you try to continue to do things as you’ve done in the past—even if you do them longer and harder—you won’t get the results that you want.  Join us for this energizing talk offering prescriptive insight, including:
  • Critical skills and traits of successful leaders in times like these
  • How to set expectations and budgets during rapid change
  • Understanding the key responsibilities of managers
  • The expected impact upon HR, sales and marketing
  • Rules for getting the right things done
  • And much, much more.

To help your business to survive 2009 and thrive into the future, remember that today’s crisis—difficult and painful though it may be—truly can become an opportunity.
