Leadership Support and Challenge in a Crisis

Our offer

by Phil Eyre Founder

Create Calm, Make Decisions


In a crisis, leaders need to bring calm, stability and then make a decision. This raises team confidence, enabling them to draw on their experience and training, handling the situation.  Fear is contagious, but so is courage. Leaders must act in a manner that instils courage and confidence, otherwise fear will paralyse decision making. 


Once the decision is made, good leaders keep the team focused, persistent and determined. 


I formed Leaders in 2017 to champion good leadership and support people in leadership positions. In the midst of these unprecedented times, it has become clear that leaders will be under considerable pressure in the coming weeks and months. From making decisions within a fast-moving situation, to supporting their workforce and adapting their business model to possible long-term changes, the pressure on leaders is immense.


Equally, our entire workforce will need to avoid face-to-face meetings in the coming weeks. Our solution is to take our leadership coaching virtual.
