In order to be effective as a leader, one must have an acute sense of self awareness. In times of crises this becomes even more important, as leaders have to deal with increasing challenges such as no longer being able to provide a clear vision, no longer being able to control everything directly and no longer being able to rely on old and trusted knowledge. In this interview, Mr Nomvalo shares his insights on the factors leaders should take into consideration as they work on themselves to become more effective. From self-awareness to being in control in the eye of the storm.
In times of crises leaders have to deal with increasing expectations and pressure, while maintaining a balance of focus between survival and opportunities. Leadership styles are tested and pre-existing conditions in relationships are amplified. In this interview, which is a follow-on from the interview on Mobilising Yourself as a Leader, Mr Nomvalo gives sterling advice on how leaders can be effective in the midst of chaos.
