Who wants to talk about if dealing with adversity is challenging for you? No one.
But your people, your profits and, most important of all, trust in your company are absolutely dependent on how you, as a leader in your organization, respond to problems. It doesn’t matter whether the challenge is internal or external, how you deal with it is so important to you and the success of your company.
When a problem arises, you might feel as if it’s best to keep it to hidden and fix it for yourself. This may seem ‘safe and prudent’ but, I assure you, it is NOT. News about problems always gets out and you will find that pretending the problem doesn’t exist can damage the trust your people have in your ability to lead them. Regaining trust once lost, is difficult.
As I share in this video, responding to adversity properly is a critical skill for you to master. The latest data from a report on country level trust rankings demonstrates how quickly poor decisions can undermine long standing trust.
