Leadership In A Time of Crisis

    Glenn Parker - Leadership in a Time of Crisis - A New Direction with Coach Jay Izso

    How is Leadership When You are in a Crisis?

    Glenn Parker - Best Selling Author - Positive Influence: Leadership in a Time of Crisis - Interview on A New Direction with Coach Jay IzsoAt some point or another ever business will find themselves in a crisis. Whether that is from inside the organization, such as a leadership change or mismanagement.  Other times it can be a surprise, where all of a sudden an outside circumstance such as COVID puts pressure on the business to make changes to survive.
    And sometimes mergers can happen that shift the culture so dramatically that create confusion, uncertainty and volatility.
    What is the role of leadership. What type of leader do you need to be when faced with these challenges?
    In this episode of A New Direction Glenn Parker returns with his most recent co-authored book, Positive Influence; Leadership in a Time of Crisis. Based on his research of different leaders from a variety of industries, you will get insights into what the best leaders did, and some of the miscalculations they made.
    Positive Influence: Leadership in a Time of Crisis: Glenn Parker - A New Direction with Coach Jay IzsoGlenn Parkers latest book is entitled, “Positive Influence: Leadership in a Time of Crisis” is a book that interviewed 50 different businesses from a variety of industries to discover how leaders handled the COVID-19 Pandemic.

    The book utilizes the four leadership types previously established in his previous book, “The Positive Influence Leader: Helping People Become Their Best Self“, which we also did on a previous episode of A New Direction (You can listen here).

    The four leadership styles, The Supportive Positive Influence Leader, The Teacher Positive Influence Leader, The Motivator Positive Influence Leader, and The Role Model Positive Influence Leader all have strengths during a crisis.

    What Glenn has found in his reasearch when it comes to leadership, is that largerly most people in leadership are ill prepared for crisis.  Leadership had to become agile, learn how to communicate and communicate clearly, and with different modalities.

    Leadership also had to empower people, because the decision making needed to be done on the fly.  The typical beauracracy and political rhetoric were thrown away for decisions to be made those who were in the middle of the crisis.

    While the events may change the fact is that anyone in leadership can learn the applications in this book.  And while you may have a tendency toward one or two styles of leadership, the fact is you need to be adaptable to the situation.

    Glenn has offered if you want to start working on your crisis leadership he will tell you how to start now before the crisis starts by emailing him personally at glenn@thepositiveinfluenceleader.com
