About this Event

Preceding every turnaround situation is a failure of leadership; there is something the incumbent leadership team failed to do or did badly. Turnaround professionals need to quickly assess where they should focus their effort and attention to get things back on track. In this interactive session, Caroline will present a practical model which explores the tasks of leadership and look at what happens when too much emphasis is placed on some tasks at the expense of others. This will provide a framework for considering how to lead a particular turnaround situation, how to play to your own personal strengths and where you might need to bring in others to support you.

For those who attended the national conference, this will be an opportunity to take a deeper dive into the model Caroline will be presenting when she chairs a session on leadership in turnaround.
