Resilience is about much more than surviving tough times.

Yet when we face difficult, unforeseen challenges we naturally tend to focus on survival first. We ‘circle the wagons’ to keep ourselves safe. Only later do we find time and energy to focus on longer term options, opportunities and ambitions.


This webinar challenges leaders to do better. It will show that strong, effective leadership when faced with complexity and uncertainty requires us to dive deep into that complexity from the outset. Instead of slowing us down this enables faster, better decisions that manage urgent challenges in ways that support and enhance longer term performance, resilience and innovation.

Dr Richard Barber will draw on his extensive experience working with complex programs, projects and organisations to show how this is achieved in practice to enable better business decisions in complexity. After the webinar, you will understand:

  • Why focusing first on managing crises leads to sub-optimal outcomes

  • How leaders should focus their energy and effort when faced with complex uncertainty and crisis

  • The kinds of practical tools and methods that can help leaders to make more whole, positive, innovative decisions in complex situations

This webinar will be followed up by a second webinar on the 9th June Driving complex project management transformation

This is a live repeat session of the same webinar held on 5th May, 2020.
