News Update from Morgan James Consulting
The One Consistent that Will Get Us Through the Challenges of These Extraordinary Times, is Our Ability to Both Respond to and Drive Change
Welcome to the latest of our ‘Catalyst’ newsletters. What an extraordinary year 2020 has turned out to be. We know that some companies have been slow to adapt to lock-down and some have been heavily impacted by the collapse of their markets. Covid-19 has not just revealed the instability of whole economies, it has unveiled the fragility of our world and everything we hold dear in it.
The business models of some of our clients have been immeasurably changed by the current crisis – but there are signs of better days ahead. Some have already found their ‘next normal’ and are forging ahead with plans for an imminent re-start. Others have spotted opportunities, completed mergers and have grasped the opportunities that less able leaders may have missed. As Winston Churchill said, “never waste a crisis.” We are working with businesses that are emerging from these difficult days: leaner; faster; wiser and more able to adapt to the challenge of continuous change.
At Morgan James, we have welcomed the ‘pause’ that has enabled us to reflect on our own business model. We are thrilled to have taken the time to:
- Recruit new experts into our tribe and welcome: Jess Carter, ex BBC and GMTV Producer who is our new Communications Specialist – helping clients to tell the stories that journalists and audiences want to hear; Martyn Corfield, our Business Performance Improvement Specialist who brings his entrepreneurial experience to help companies to increase efficiencies and ensure that they have the resources to deliver on their growth intentions. They complement our tribe of Behavioural Specialists; Financial and Strategic Experts; Business Change Strategists, Brand, Marketing and Creative Partners. With the talent in our team, we are truly equipped to help to stabilise and grow leaders and management teams in every business sector.
- We have developed our online offering through virtual classrooms and webinars to ensure that our clients are able to rise to their challenges. We have a broad range of online masterclasses to help you to: lead through adversity; find your iron underpants to build resilience in your teams, or improve your problem solving capability. We have lots of other online offerings – find more information about our webinars here.
- And finally, we’ve had time to create a new, dynamic website that truly represents our business, sharing details or our coaching and consultancy services, our latest workshops and our highly acclaimed Step into Management and Strategic Leaders Programs. We recognise how crucial it is to have innovative, analytical and inspirational leadership populations – now more than at any other time for a generation – and that’s exactly what we’re able to develop. We are so proud of our graduates and their ability to negotiate the shifting sands of the past few months. Please get in touch with us if you or your staff would like to join Cohort 4 of our Step Into Management or Strategic Leaders Programs in October 2020.
Whatever difficulties you are facing, whatever ambitions you may have in these uncertain times, we’d love to help you to realise them. Please do get in touch for a no obligation chat about how we can help you to build a high performing leadership team or develop the capability of the managers and influencers of your business.
“In union there is strength.” – Aesop
We look forward to hearing from you.
