What does Brexit mean to you?

It seems likely that we face a prolonged period of uncertainty as the political and business communities unravel the implications of the Brexit decision on 23 June, 2016. 

Ashridge has extensive experience and expertise of working with organizations who are working with radical and complex change and prolonged uncertainty. For over two decades we have developed a distinctive position on the critical capabilities and qualities that leaders need to manage complexity and ambiguity. Adaptive or extraordinary leadership is required and involves being able to work with what are often contradictory challenges - being purposeful and proactive whilst also recognizing that you are not actually in control of much; containing people’s anxiety but also helping them recognize that they may have to work very differently in the future. 

We would like to share relevant thought leadership with you as you work through what Brexit means for you.
