How good leaders turn crisis into advantage
Webinar With Edwin van Vlierberghe: 8th July 2021
Edwin is an acknowledged thought leader in workplace innovation with a highly successful track record to back it up. He managed to transform a traditional tram producing plant into the most productive site in the Bombardier multi-national family. In his most recent role, he was asked to lead the cultural transformation of global procurement and the company’s supply chain to create a “shining island” of good practice.
During this webinar, Edwin explored the leadership actions and behaviours required to position companies for a sustainable future. He examined evidence and experience to show how good leaders turn crisis to advantage by taking the long view, unleashing workforce potential and avoiding damaging short-term thinking.
According to Edwin: “It is entirely possible to create a workplace environment where people are not only able but willing to use their creativity to bring about improvements in performance and solve issues on a daily basis while implementing new and innovative ways of working. Isn’t that what good leaders do?”
