About this episode

How do leaders respond in a crisis to ensure decisions are made with strategy and empathy rather than in fear?

This session hosted by Daniel Murray from Empathic Consulting is a discussion of his recent white paper ‘5 key strategies leaders must not ignore when faced with challenging times’. How we prepare and act now is crucial to our success and ongoing sustainability. It is amid a crisis that leadership comes under the microscope.

Daniel explores – with a mix of empathy, strategy and pragmatism – how leaders must build trust and understanding to create strong relationships that will carry us through crisis and beyond.
