What We Think

Leading Through COVID-19


The impact of COVID-19 is ostensible for organisations and leaders alike, and we know that the leadership community is being inundated with calls for help and time in areas well beyond their experience. In this livestream, Maximus Joint Managing Directors Vanessa Gavan and Brent Duffy discuss the criticality for leaders to gain control over, and get comfortable with the situation to lead from a place of confidence.

Part 2, ‘Bridging the Divide and Injecting Energy’, sees us repositioning the leader’s mindset to identify the opportunities COVID-19 presents and examine major organisational and leadership themes we see playing out, and how to translate these into ‘re-imagining’ opportunities for your organisation during re-entry. Our session will also acknowledge the challenge and provide strategies to revive a fatigued workforce through the lens of ‘The 3rd Quarter Phenomenon’. We present the questions every organisation should ask themselves to maintain attention and purposeful action within their workforce.
