Successful COVID Strategic Pivots
Presented by Dr. Gleb Tsipursky
Disaster Avoidance Expert
In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, you will dramatically improve your ability to do a successful strategic pivot to thrive in the COVID pandemic and plan for a successful post-pandemic recovery. Cutting-edge neuroscience and behavioral economics shows that in slow-moving train wrecks of a disaster such as this pandemic, we fall into a trap called the normalcy bias, trying to get back to normal too quickly and hoping and planning for best-case scenarios. Yet hope is not a strategy; we should hope for the best, but plan for the worst. That means you need to, first of all, challenge your underlying assumptions about your systems and processes for a variety of future scenarios for the course of the pandemic. As part of doing so, anticipate and get ahead of the major economic and social shifts that will accompany the post-pandemic recovery in your planning. Next, you need to gather internal information from relevant constituents about their perspectives on challenging assumptions. Then, determine your broad strategy, and how it would shift depending on the various scenarios. Finally, decide on how you will operationalize your strategy. This presentation will offer you pragmatic and immediately-applicable research-based strategies for doing a pivot to thrive in the new abnormal of the pandemic and develop a long-term strategic plan to navigate the post-pandemic recovery successfully.
