Leadership challenges in times of profound uncertainty
Randall S. Peterson, Professor of Organisational Behaviour
Business leaders face completely new challenges as they seek to provide clear direction while adapting to the unknown. In this webinar, Professor Randall S. Peterson focuses on a specific risk facing many executive teams and boards: falling victim to the threat-rigidity effect, where we focus on what has worked in the past rather than coming up with new approaches. He explores the psychology and suggests ways you can avoid three main traps. Randall will be joined by Chris Hopson, CEO of NHS Providers (the membership organisation for all of England’s health trusts) Chris shares insights into how they have successfully addressed these challenges.

The Leadership Institute supported the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors in producing their March 2022 report 'Cultivating a healthy culture'. Over one hundred senior internal audit executives participated in the research survey that underpins this report, which provides in-depth insights on best practice in corporate culture and behavioural auditing. In addition to the survey, two roundtable discussions with senior internal audit executives representing a range of sectors were held, attended by Vyla Rollins, Executive Director of the Leadership Institute.
‘Paying for good for all’ (June 2022) is the latest collaboration between Executive Fellow Tom Gosling and PwC on the topic of linking pay to ESG targets. A follow-up to ‘Paying well by paying for good’, this study looks at practice and attitudes globally and extends the analysis to consider alignment of broader company-wide reward strategy with ESG. The original report, published in 2021, looks at whether executive pay should be linked to ESG targets, and if so how.
