What are the differences between being in a change situation vs a an uncertain situation and how might you need to modify your approach when dealing with uncertainty. Also, let’s explore why focusing on collaboration may be even more important when dealing with uncertainty.
The two experts joining me today are Rebecca Sutherns from Guelf Canada and Greg Holland-King from Melbourne Australia, who will answer the questions:
What different challenges does ongoing uncertainty present to managers who may have successful managed change in the past?
Why is collaboration so important during periods of uncertainty ?
What are some of the obstacles teams face everyday that can get in the way of collaboration? And what can be done to overcome those obstacles?
If a manager wants to be a champion of collaboration, what are some of the most important skills they should develop? And how might they best develop them?
Are there any common everyday things that team leaders do that may unwittingly hinder collaboration?
“If you build a relationship at the time of need, it’s too late.”
“When you’re in the storm, that’s not the time to be replenishing your supplies on the boat.”
“As soon as you become a manager, you lose the luxury of being a cynical bastard.”
“Collaboration – you first go slowly to then go quickly.”
