Surviving turbulence: the creative brilliance of crowds
In harsh economic times, according to business mythology, senior leaders need to know the right path; to show the steady hand of experience. They need to get back to basics. Nothing, in our view, could be further from the truth. The urge to run for the seclusion of the boardroom is dangerous. Something far more demanding is called for. In our experience, fully engaged participation offers the most potent way to build on the collective intelligence and insight of all your staff whilst at the same time securing the ownership you need to allow difficult decisions to be made and implemented effectively.
