Leading in a recession

In order to survive a recession the business needs to cut staff and costs – Right? Wrong! McKinney Rogers conducted an international survey of senior business executives and found some interesting results.

Q: What are the most important things the business needs to focus on in order to reduce the risk of exposure to recession?

- 78% of respondents said the development of their workforce was the key tool;

- 73% agree that moving into emerging markets that are unlikely to be affected by recession is important;

- 67% said that diversifying the business offering was necessary;

- Only 38% of respondents believe that cutting prices to become more competitive is effective;

- Only 34% thought that reducing the number of employees would be effective;

- Only 23% thought that reducing marketing spend would be smart;

At times of economic slowdown it is essential that all staff buy in to the vision and direction of the business. Tough times are demanding and resilience is a must have. This makes leadership even more important than during the good times. Making productivity in the right areas a focal point and aligning people, resources and strategies will reduce exposure to the risks of recession.

Teamworks is running a 1 day workshop on “Leading in a Recession” that covers the following:

- Exploring how the recession might impact on your business.

- Why leadership in a recession is critical and what to do differently.

- How to “recession-proof” the business.How to use the recession to your advantage?

- Criteria for deciding what needs more attention and what can be put on the backburner.

- How to improve resilience in individuals and teams.
