High-Stakes Leadership

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

Why are some leaders in high-stakes situations and crisis highly effective, while others disappoint, and some utterly fail? What is the difference? Why are some able to not only survive but thrive, even in tumult?

The answer is, that high-stakes leaders demonstrate three critical aspects that ensure they perform well in a crisis. The good news is that these three qualities can be strengthened, taught and honed in those who have a thirst to learn.

Listen as Dr. Linda Sharkey and Morag Barrett talk with Constance Dierickx about the insights from her new book High-Stakes Leadership, Leading Through Crisis with Courage, Judgment, and Fortitude. You’ll learn why leading is high-stakes – and why leaders who don’t know they are in high-stakes situations are at the most risk. Why courage, judgment and fortitude are the essential elements needed by leaders.

Constance specializes in working with organizations in high-stakes transitions, including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, CEO succession, strategic change, and crisis. Her clients include AAA, AT&T, Belk, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Cox Enterprises, DIRECTV, IBM, NextGear Capital, Olive Garden, and others. She has advised over 500 executives, on five continents in 28 industries.

Change is afoot with 96% of organizations reported to be in some phase of transformation. Yet the inconvenient truth is that many of these transformation efforts fail to deliver (all) the anticipated benefits. It’s time to change how we approach change! Leaders and organizations alike need to adapt or risk becoming obsolete.
