Leadership in Times of Uncertainty

It is nearly impossible to escape from the unending stream of global unrest and financial upheaval. And yet, in extraordinary times people turn to their leaders for guidance and reassurance more than ever before.

While no one can predict with confidence what will happen next, it would seem likely that uncertainty will generate volatility for some time to come. It is important to note that CEOs and others in senior management positions have no immunity from feelings of helplessness and apprehension fostered by these events.
