You Can Lead Through a Crisis But Can You Coach Through One?

8:30–9:30 pm
Virtual Webinar


The coronavirus pandemic is a crisis unlike any other in recent times. As employees try to ride out this unprecedented crisis, they are stressed and anxious - about what lies ahead: professionally, personally and the state of the world. Even at the best of times, employees crave support, direction and guidance from their managers, who often fall short as coaches that empower and enable. Today more than ever, we need leaders that coach, empower, and provide direction, meaning, and support when employees need it the most. How can you help your employees find their own path amidst so much uncertainty? How can you help them prioritise, and navigate these choppy waters?

Join this live webinar to discuss the above questions.
