Sir Peter Wall on Leaders:
“They don’t respect you out of duty. They are looking to see if you are any good”. Be yourself. Leader needs to be seen.
Sir Peter Wall re Teams:
Build the team as need really good people around you. Seize the opportunity coming out of this crisis. Need resilient teams that can bounce back / bounce off. The only limits are one’s imagination. Resilience = capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. Buy in happens by being involved in the process / consulted.
Clear consistent repeated communication. Clarity is essential. Clarity of determination. Clear intentions. Support people to deliver.
Take people with you. Grow resilience via experience / be adventurous / take risks. Learning comes from setbacks. It works or it doesn’t – reflect rethink reboot.
Assess situation – difficult at speed so don’t worry about the paintwork. Review options, choose one, do it with vigour
