    Channel 3 – BUSINESS AND THE COMMUNITY

     

    Presented by Audra Lamoon of Livewire.

    2020 was characterised by crisis and the need for leaders to step up and provide direction for their teams. As we move into the next stage of Covid-19, we need to make the switch from primarily leadership teams holding accountability for success, to everyone in the organisation feeling accountable. This means providing opportunities for employees to articulate their role in driving the organisation forward, whereby everyone feels they have been architects of change and are therefore invested in its success
