Leading Through Turbulent Times

Good leaders can manage the normal ups and downs of running a business, but great leaders can also guide their teams through periods of prolonged uncertainty and disruption.

An article on this topic caught our eye at INSIDE Public Accounting, where the Harvard Business Review is considered a go-to publication for leadership insights.

Timothy Clark asserts that while leaders can’t control outside influences, they can strongly influence the engagement, morale and productivity of their teams.

“They can do that,” he writes, “by creating ‘thick’ trust, inoculating with vision, increasing honesty and transparency, and framing uncertainty as opportunity.” Clark, CEO of LeaderFactor, a global leadership consulting and training firm, lays out those four strategies to engage employees in the most trying of circumstances. It’s worth a read.
