Working virtually | Lynda Gratton, Professor of Management Practice

Suddenly we’re all trying to figure out how to work virtually. Lynda has been researching and consulting with companies on the practical challenges of collaboration and decision-making in virtual teams for more than a decade. In this webinar, she shared some of her insights into how you structure and manage your teams when they’re working from home.

Making difficult judgments in coronavirus times | Sir Andrew Likierman, Professor of Management Practice

The scale and disruption of this crisis make crucial judgments essential but also particularly problematic. Personal, as well as professional decisions, are involved. Sir Andrew used his current research on judgment to advise on how to tackle these big issues.

Negotiating losses in times of crisis| Niro Sivanathan, Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour

The COVID-19 outbreak has wreaked havoc on supply chains and resulted in cash flow challenges for businesses. As a result, vital shipments are delayed, clients are struggling to meet payments and services are not rendered. Invariably, these issues will result in conflicts and disputes that need to be resolved. The responsibility to negotiate these disputes and resolve conflict may fall on you. In this webinar, Niro covers evidence-based approaches to negotiating these complex scenarios.

Leading through a crisis| Kathleen O’Connor, Clinical Professor of Organisational Behaviour

It is often said that leaders reveal their true selves in times of crisis. In this session Kathleen addressed the challenges of leading effectively under time pressures and when you’re not in control of events around you. 

Coping with a pandemic: from strategic agility to resilience|Julian Birkinshaw, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship; Deputy Dean, Executive Education and Learning Innovation

When the external environment is unpredictable and fast-changing, companies need to be agile (able to respond quickly). But they also need to be resilient (able to withstand shocks). In this session, Julian explains the difference between agility and resilience in terms of how companies need to operate and manage their activities.

Coronavirus and the global economy|Andrew Scott, Professor of Economics

The novel coronavirus has created a huge shock to the global economy in terms of both supply and demand. Many sectors are already in crisis, and the stock market has fallen by around 40%. In this session, Andrew draws experience from previous crises, such as 9/11 and the 2008 global financial crisis, to discuss how governments, central banks and cross-national entities such as the World Bank Group and the IMF will seek to chart a way forward. 

Navigating a crisis: lessons from the Great Recession| Ioannis Ioannou, Associate Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship

In this session, Ioannis draws on his research from the 2008-10 global financial crisis to examine strategies adopted by companies to find their way through, and subsequently recover from, that crisis. In particular, he examines the trade-offs between short-term demands and longer-term investment. 

Surviving past survival mode: learning from successful turnarounds and what this new crisis may bring |Michael Jacobides, Sir Donald Gordon Professor of Entrepreneurship and Innovation; Professor of Strategy

The coronavirus crisis might threaten the very existence of many firms, as sectors collapse and economic activity grinds to a halt through quarantining and self-isolation. Michael G. Jacobides looked at what we can learn from successful and failed turnarounds when firms enter survival mode. He also explained how leaders can push organisations to move beyond survival mode to ensure we come out stronger when this crisis subsides.

Taking advantage of the coronavirus disruption to rethink (and possibly reinvent) your career | Herminia Ibarra, Charles Handy Professor of Organisational Behaviour

An external shock like the current pandemic can be a great opportunity to rethink – and perhaps take steps towards reinventing – our careers. Anything that disrupts our daily routine brings an opportunity to reflect on our past, our present situation, and what possibilities we envision for the future. But reflection rarely leads to change without the action steps that teach us what is actually feasible and desirable. Herminia Ibarra draws on two decades of research and writing on work and identity transition to describe key elements of successful career change, offering guidelines for taking advantage of these challenging times to do things we might not have done before.

Marketing leadership in a time of crisis| Rajesh Chandy, Tony and Maureen Wheeler Chair in Entrepreneurship; Professor of Marketing; Academic Director, Wheeler Institute for Business and Development

This too shall pass. But the world we will emerge into will likely be a changed one. In this webinar, Rajesh Chandy shares insights from research on driving markets during and after periods of great change.

The upside of pestilence: how the virus will humanise our organisations | Dominic Houlder, Adjunct Professor and Jules Goddard, Guest Faculty

There are two responses to extreme uncertainty. One is nihilism. The other is a hunger for meaning. Drawing on their recent work exploring what philosophy can teach us about leadership, Jules Goddard and Dominic Houlder show how the institutions and leaders that help to satisfy that hunger for meaning will emerge from the crisis far stronger than those which do not.

The economics of pandemics|Paolo Surico, Professor of Economics 

What are the major economic and social costs of the COVID-19 crisis? Which generation, group of households and firms will suffer more? How will inequality change? What can the government do about it and what should be planned as priority for the short- and medium-term? What are the essential trade-offs that policy makers need to focus on? In this session, Paolo discusses the major economic and policy challenges posed by the worst health and economic crises of our time, looking at how COVID-19 will completely reshape the world economy and how governments and central banks around the world can still avoid an economic catastrophe.
