Developing Organizational Resilience & Leadership in a Prolonged Crisis

What does it mean to lead an organization through a crisis that is not fleeting?

The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded us that not all crises are ‘acute’ or fleeting. In fact, prolonged crises have lasting impacts on a business that require much more than ‘mitigation’ or ‘management’. Rather, these crises call for new mindsets, new ways of working and new approaches to leadership. In this webinar, we will explore organisational resilience, in the applied form of case studies, frameworks and tools. We will speak to leaders to understand how they have practically applied some of these approaches and what they learned from this experience.

We are pleased to introduce our co-host, Marilyn Zakhour, CEO & Founder of Cosmic Centaurs. Marilyn has experience in organisations of all sizes and knows how to bring the agility of small start-ups to big corporations. Previously Chief Marketing Officer of EMAAR, and Head of Dubai Opera, Marilyn holds an executive MBA from INSEAD.
