Leaders face an environment that is more uncertain and challenging than at any point in the last ten years – perhaps the last 100. Leadership will be critical if organizations are to bounce back strongly and thrive in the new normality. In this issue’s Focus, we look at some of the skills and behaviours that leaders must master. We examine how leaders can boost behavioural change by reducing resistance. At a time when problems are rife, we examine how to focus on solving the right ones. We explore the leadership skills and mindsets that will be needed for future success, and set out the rules for mastering the art of remote working. And we look at the starting point for handling stressful situations – managing yourself.
