Are you ready for a post-pandemic world?
Are you struggling to lead in an uncertain future?
Are you worried about leading your people and business into this future?

Some people say, “We’re all in the same boat”, but that’s not true. We’re all in the same storm, but we’re in different boats, navigating our way through the storm.

The pandemic has affected different industries in different ways, and even within an industry, businesses have felt its impact differently. Some have been completely thrown into chaos, others have had a period of instability and adjustment, and others are even thriving because demand has grown for their products. But regardless of your current circumstances, the future has now become much less certain, and even thriving businesses need to deal with this uncertainty and volatility.

Faced with an uncertain future, many leaders and business owners fall into the trap of only creating short-term plans. But that’s the wrong approach because it leaves you too vulnerable to external forces. The key skill you need to thrive is foresight – the ability to look ahead into an uncertain future.

In this program, we’ll explore multiple plausible future scenarios for the future, so you can consider their impact on the industry, and then plan your strategy, tactics and actions for moving to recovery and growth.

Who Is This For?

This program is ideal for:

  • Leaders and leadership teams
  • Business owners and their teams
  • Forward-thinking leaders who want to involve their teams in recovery and growth

What Do You Get?

  • Use PESTLE analysis to understand the external pressures affecting your organisation and industry
  • Use scenario planning tools to map out plausible future scenarios
  • Know potential obstacles and barriers to progress and growth
  • Identify key initiatives for implementation in the short and long term
