ACTUALITY CRISIS TRANSFORMATION

TURNING BIG KNOCKS INTO BIG GROWTH.

One minute you are cruising along and everything is going fine, and the next minute something that you didn’t see coming hits you and turns your whole plan upside down.

 

And suddenly it feels like everything is crashing in on you. You are overcome with fear and anxiety about how you’re going to solve it. It feels like you could lose everything you’ve been working to build.

 

It’s lonely at the top.

 

You find yourself waking up in the middle of the night like someone just gave you a shot of adrenaline. From fast asleep to wide awake in an instant and your mind is racing down the rabbit hole- what am I going to do, what could I have done differently, why is this happening to me.

 

But none of that brings any clarity. 

 

You have some heavy weight decisions to make, and one wrong move could cost you everything, but you can’t think clearly and the lack of sleep is just making it worse.

 

You are trying everything to get yourself out of this, but you just not getting the kind of answers you are willing to settle for. 

 

You had just reached a place where it felt like things were coming together for you. And now this.


Suddenly things are feeling very unstable and the situation has become very serious.

The demands are relentless, and you can’t see the pathway forward. 

Whether it’s one or many of these big knocks pushing up against you, you need to pull a rabbit out of a hat fast, and you’re not sure how to do that.

SOCIAL CRISIS

Facing a threat to your Social License to Operate.

GOVERNANCE CRISIS

Facing Reputational Damage from an Exposed Governance Issues in your Organisation

REGULATORY CRISIS

You are not achieving regulatory standards affecting your ability to secure investment capital or government approval.

BOARD CRISIS

Disputes, Conflict and Fragmentation at Board and Executive Leadership level makes high stakes decision making impossible.

POLITICAL CRISIS

You lost critical Political Support that took years to secure,

PERSONAL CRISIS

Not to mention having to do something that goes against your Personal Morals to move things forward because of pressure from shareholders

PERFORMANCE CRISIS

And your Employees are feeling the Weight of their Responsibilities, and its taking a toll on their Mental and Physical Health.

You all have so much on your plate, it is hard to keep up. It feels like you are constantly Firefighting and Managing Conflicts rather than focusing on the work. Targets are Slipping Away.

Crisis Transformation is a powerful system specifically designed for when big knocks disrupt business as usual, when time is not on your side and you are pressed to make high stakes decisions that turn things around.

 

After 25 years on working to solve big complex, high stakes problems fast, I realised that regardless of the content of the problem there was a common pattern that underpinned them.

Something very disruptive happens- policy or regulatory change, black swan events, violent eruptions, political instability, community retaliation, environmental backlash, regulatory pushback.

It makes people question what’s really important.

Relationships breakdown because people don’t see the problem the same way.

Problem solving and decision making is increasingly difficult.

Opposition escalates, and people can’t agree on anything. 

Anxiety builds up. People become emotionally volatile.

People push harder and harder to do more, because they are not getting the results.

People start getting sick more often and for longer.

You are not hitting performance targets and the board is breathing down your neck.

Its putting a strain on limited finances, and if you don’t turn things around fast you are heading for a financial problem.

Pressure escalates. It’s a vicious spiral downward.

 

But the underlying pattern is invisible to most.

 

They are so busy focusing on , strategy, processes, systems, procedures, policies and conflicts. 

 

No one is focused on the root problem. The internal and personal world of people that is necessary for navigating disruption.

 

The disruption shifted how people perceive priorities, and that broke down critical relationships which eroded the organisation’s ability to problem solve and take the high stakes decisions that make a critical difference.

 

When I learnt to solve that problem, the results I got were mind boggling.

 

Crisis Transformation is a guaranteed formula to turn big knocks into big growth.

Instead of a downward spiral into chaos, conflict and confusion; it’s a formula that brings clarity, certainty and cohesion.

 

When you learn to master the Crisis Transformation Formula you will not only recover rapidly from major disruptions, you’ll uplevel and lead your organisation into accelerated growth.

 

Disruption is the new normal. 

 

Crisis Transformation is what will differentiate your leadership, leaving a lasting legacy that inspires.
