Dr Tanvi's KeyNote

The quadrant of crisis - leading your people through uncertain times 


No one on the planet has been through a pandemic before and yet our leaders are expected to show up at their best just on the basis of contingency plans for business continuity. It takes a lot more than that to be a leader who can take care of the emotional and motivational needs of a population in crisis. 


When hit by a crisis, leaders launch into survival mode but to survive a crisis requires leaders to move to laying foundations for a new future. In this keynote Dr. Tanvi explores the quadrant of crisis, an original framework she has developed, to help leaders make sense of a crisis and quickly impose a sense of meaning and strategy at multiple levels. This conversation is relevant not just now but beyond the current crisis.
