Interviewed by Julie Kinch, CEO/Founder, JK Leadership Advisors
Leadership is a process of social influence, which maximizes the efforts of others, toward
s the achievement of a goal. Each of us can be a leader and make a positive difference, whatever our title or position.
This series takes you inside the minds of some of the most respected visionaries, thought leaders and entrepreneurs in the alcohol beverage industry.
These live, one-on-one interviews, with Q&A open to attendees, will provide you with tangible tools on how to lead through uncertain times and inspire you to take action.
Here are some questions to ask yourselves as you lead through a crisis:
- Am I defining reality and creating hope in this unprecedented time?
- Am I helping my team become the change makers we need so they can be successful in difficult times?
- What are the key relationships I need to maintain in order to emerge from the current crisis?
- Do our decisions mirror our company values?
- Is our organization’s culture being maintained through our responses during the crisis?
