How do you cope with stressful situations? Crises happen. Though not typically on the scale of a global pandemic. But when they do, this past year has proven that life goes on — meetings continue, deadlines persist, work demands do not lessen, and family obligations remain. Whether the crisis is the result of a global pandemic or a missed deadline causing a delayed global market launch when you’re in the thick of it, the pressure is intense. How do you juggle your priorities? How do you do it all — or don’t you? And how do you effectively handle the sliding scale of pushing one thing over here to accommodate something over there? Our panelists run large teams at work, have families at home, and are here to share their real-life experiences on how they juggle careers in crisis while still maintain some sort of sanity.

Takeaways: Attendees will learn about these key points:

  • Planning: how the globalization team influences business strategy
  • Accountability: how to drive business through engagement in processes
  • High performance teams: stretching leaders into more strategic thinkers
