Mentoring through Challenging Times: Leading through Ambiguity
Strong leadership skills come to the fore in challenging times. Leaders who don’t step up to inform, connect, guide, and unite miss out on opportunities to keep people focused and engaged.

Although this style of leadership does not require perfection. It does require authenticity, clear communication, and a willingness to engage with people.
Joanna spoke to Bizwomen about how building personal resilience is key to leading through uncertainty.
