Leading through uncertainty

How do you lead wholeheartedly with courage and compassion at a time of disruptive change and uncertainty?
Jude shares her findings from her research into her book 'Leading through uncertainty', based on interviews with CEOs.
She'll cover the context of uncertainty, the emotional responses uncertainty creates and why, as well as 8 leadership skills that are critical in uncertainty but the skills we are least likely to remember to use.

Every team needs a horse! Revealing the non-verbal behaviour that accelerates results

Jude introduces the power of non-verbal communication, based on a decade of working with leaders and teams. She explains how working with horses reveals your non-verbal behaviour, enabling leaders and teams to understand the patterns of behaviour that make them effective, as well as the ones that derail them.

Expect to be enlightened, inspired and entertained with stories of clients leading horses, including:
What to do when a horse refuses to move
Turning chaos into clarity
Managing boundaries without a fight

Hold polarities with clarity, curiosity and understanding
HR Director Magazine
October 22, 2020
Uncertainty leads to differences of opinion because we don’t have all the information when something has not been done before. We’ve never led through a global pandemic before, so everyone has a different view on how to handle it.
This article explores the challenge of polarisation and the need to encourage exploration in teams using curiosity and seeking to understand difference points of view.

Why vitality trumps resilience
HR Director magazine
June 09, 2020
There is an insidious disease among us – resilience.

In the last few months, employees have had to upskill rapidly in practical terms – furloughing, new legislation, virtual working, new technology, revised health and safety policies, industry changes. Not to forget home-schooling.

Prioritisation has never been so critical and so difficult.

Resilience training, however well-meaning, often creates the expectation that employees should dig deeper whilst simultaneously being put under more pressure. This is not sustainable or reasonable.

We need to start focusing on vitality.

Amongst all the chaos, how are your pets doing?

I'm serious. They feel your energy and vibration of the world. If you think this is a bit crazy, just know that you pick up on energy too. You know when someone is angry on the end of a phone, not just from the tone of their voice. You know when you walk into a dodgy part of town or the mood of a meeting. This is the energy of emotion that impacts all of us but mostly we have not been trained to pay attention to it. So we ignore it.

What are the challenges we face in business as we lead through uncertainty?

My next book entitled Leading through uncertainty is due for publication in May 2018. As part of my research, I interviewed CEOs and leaders in organisations on their challenges and experiences of leading through uncertainty.

The interviews were so fascinating that I extended the research and have launched a Leading through uncertainty podcast showcasing the interviews.

In between interviews, I’ll share some of my own thoughts on uncertainty and the emotional

How do you respond to stress and overwhelm?
LinkedIn
March 14, 2017
In Oct 2016, I ran a thought leadership round table with horses. The output was a 12 page report on Leading through uncertainty. One of the topics discussed was Stress and overwhelm. Here is an extract from the report:

People in organisations are operating under severe pressure, with a sense of “If I can just get to the end of the week, it’ll be ok.” This is an adrenaline-fuelled, high-alert state and people do not function effectively when placed under continual stress in this way.

Making an impact
LinkedIn
November 18, 2015
When I ask clients that question, they usually don't know. Most people have never considered their impact. Some of my clients tell me they don't have one. I assure you that you do have an impact! When clients start to pay attention to the impact they have on different people in different situations, they are often surprised. You may have done intellectual forms of training that help you negotiate, manage projects and understand how people think. But how you show up, your presence and non-verbal communication also have a substantial impact on how you lead, inspire and influence others.

Vulnerability, fear and courage

May 06, 2015
It's a vulnerable place to be leading a horse when you have no idea what you are doing and how she will react.

It’s a vulnerable place to be standing on the edge of a cliff on a windy day. Your safety is threatened. There is a risk that the wind will whip you off, and you'll fall over the edge.

My response to this is always: “I don’t know. How do you lead? I only know how I lead.” I ask them to try. As the client stepped forward out of his comfort zone, he was vulnerable. This place of not knowing can be hard for most people, especially when their team is watching, poised to give feedback.

8 leadership skills to lead through uncertainty
HR Director magazine
December 31, 1969
Disruptive change creates uncertainty and we resist it because it is uncomfortable. Uncertainty generates a range of emotions, polarises opinions and can lead to relationships breaking down. It requires great skill and flexibility to lead through uncertainty.

It is also an opportunity for leaders and teams to do meaningful work that makes a difference.

As part of my research into uncertainty, I held a round table discussion with a group of thought leaders from different backgrounds and sectors to identify the skills needed to lead through uncertainty. I tested the findings by interviewing CEOs and senior leaders on their experiences, as well as drawing on my own experiences.

The following skills were identified as the ones we forget to use in uncertainty.

Innovating Humanity
November 26, 2020
Bjoern Hirtenjohann is the Public Sector CTO for Microsoft. He explains how Microsoft have accelerated the move to the cloud computing for clients as a result of Covid. He also puts to rest the nervousness that people have around technology taking over our lives or security issues with the cloud, and explains what Microsoft are doing to enhance the way we live and work. He explains how technology can improve workplace culture, giving more freedom to colleagues to change processes.

Bjoern has made me think more about how we use technology and specifically, how we make time to work out how we use it wisely. We hear so much scaremongering around AI and social media, yet Microsoft are pushing boundaries of how we can use it to enhance the way we live and work and solve social and business problems. I’m determined to put aside time each week to explore how I use technology to improve the way I work.
