Impactful communication

Who dives, never does this alone. Even in murky waters communication must succeed. A few succinct hand signals are enough to settle the necessary. Reading the terrain and interpreting signals is essential. And decisions must be made quickly and courageously.

How unspecific and confused, on the other hand, is often our interaction with each other and our approach to management! I cannot afford that as a interim manager contributing in economic situation where time is pretty restricted.

Business Continuity Management

“Crisis is rarely a black swan, but mostly as a result of a lack of consistency.”

For Bodo Antonic, trusted adviser for entrepreneurs and senior and middle management executives, the persistence and safety of the company are everything. Risk management processes, as they are anchored in some companies, do not go far enough for him even with the best will in the world. Due to a lack of experience in dealing with crises, possible risks are continuously underestimated.
