Venue: Hotel Istana City Centre Kuala Lumpur
COVID-19 is disrupting the way people live and how workplaces operate around the globe. Returning back to the status quo will be nearly impossible. Companies have shifted their focus from long-term to short-term strategies in an effort to survive COVID-19. Employee’s emotions are heightened due to the uncertainty of how long this pandemic will last.

The greatest challenge management faces is being able to find a balance between being empathetic and authoritative. In addition, they’re haphazardly trying to learn the necessary skills to lead their newly remote team. As the top management scrambles to establish a business continuity plan and pivot the business to meet the current economic needs, they’re less available to provide the training their managers require to thrive during and post era of COVID-19.

Employees are a company’s most valuable asset and if they want to survive and succeed this crisis they need to invest in developing their managers. Investing in the development of adaptive executives and managers is the best option to survive and thrive during and post pandemic.
