The 6 Stages of Any Crisis, Challenge, or Change, the 5 Steps to P.I.V.O.T. for Success, and 7 Leadership Reminders To Lead Through It

Do your people understand the six stages of a crisis?

Do your leaders recognize the stage their people are in and do they react appropriately?

Are your leaders leading, or just hoping for the right outcomes?

Understand the six stages of any crisis, challenge, or change.
Implement the five ways to P.I.V.O.T. through the crisis.
Use the seven leadership reminders to lead out of a crisis.

In order to successfully lead people through and out of a crisis, first, we have to understand the 6 stages of the crisis. Based on her Navy experiences during the first and second Gulf Wars and 9-11, Commander Mary Kelly articulates the reactions of people in various stages of crisis, challenge, or change.

As effective leaders, we have to be able to help our people P.I.V.O.T. through the crisis, by renewing their sense of purpose, influencing and inspiring others to take the right action, assessing the volatility levels, seeing the opportunities, and providing the right tools, techniques, and technology that allow people to succeed. Then we can apply Mary’s seven leadership reminders, using the acronym C.L.A.M.P.E.R. so that we are providing the right response to the right people at the right time to achieve the right outcomes.

Leadership Succession Planning Made Easy

75 million baby boomers are reaching retirement age in the next several years. Whether you are one of them or one of the many leaders who will be navigating the changes, it is imperative that you have a plan.

Join economist and leadership expert, Dr. Mary Kelly, as she explains how the right succession plan will attract top talent, develop leadership skills, and guarantee success for the next decade and beyond. Get out of panic mode and into a culture of continuous leadership development.

Understand what a comprehensive succession plan is, and why it’s a must-have for your business
Gain the knowledge needed to compete in today’s marketplace
Challenge your beliefs of what true leadership means
Learn to share your experience to create a legacy
Prepare a customized succession plan ready for immediate implementation

Many good people, when they rise to leadership positions, fail. Good leadership seems easy in theory but actually living, executing, and fostering strong, effective leadership in corporations and organizations is tough.

How can we ensure success? What do successful leaders do differently?

What are the surprisingly common mistakes that many leaders unknowingly make that derail their success?

Using current data and case studies collected through years of corporate and military leadership, you’ll learn why so many leaders fail, and how to avoid the hidden pitfalls.

Leadership is most critical during times of crisis. Leadership happens when things are tough and there are problems to solve. Why Leaders Fail shows audiences how to be even better leaders.

Learning objectives:

  • Gain insights into behaviors that may be sabotaging the loyalty of direct reports
  • Understand why their top talent may not be performing up to their potential
  • Align team goals with organizational mission using Mary’s tools to maximize profitability
  • Develop awareness of how leaders are perceived by their direct reports, peers, and supervisors
  • Includes a personalized leadership assessment to help identify leadership strengths and weaknesses
