Workshop A – Leading through extraordinary events

We live in a world of uncertainty, where small issues can escalate into a crisis, with CEO’s quickly facing share price drops and personal consequences. The radical transparency of the connected world means that leaders need to demonstrate ethical maturity to do the right thing when the chips are down. Extraordinary events stir up emotions and in HR we need to build our capacity to thrive in these circumstances, and also understand our role in helping our organisations to respond with humanity and enable staff advocacy.

In this workshop, Carrie will share experiences from her 10 years at HR Director for News UK which included the phone hacking scandal and closure of News of the World.
