In this episode of YS Up Governance and Boards Podcast, 3YS Owls Governance Consultants, Ainslie Cunningham and Deb Anderson interview Jo Willoughby and together they explore some very practical insights on culture, diversity, growth, opportunity and change in the current climate.
The number one reason why transformations fail is because of the lack of communication and poor leadership. So now more than ever, people are looking to their leaders for certainty and we need to be able to provide it.
Jo shares with us:
1. Stay calm and don't panic
2. Get clarity on priorities with strong leadership and direction
3. Communication is key especially when dealing with teams facing a new way of working.
