Managing under pressure

Desperate businessman working late

lessons from a rescue diver and interim manager

As an interim manager, Bodo Antonic works under extreme conditions: he is short-termed charged when the house is burning and the office buzzing. Always under tense, unknown conditions – and only for a limited time. A mix of requirements that he knows from his diving operations in unknown waters and vital mission.

From this double experience, Bodo Antonic has gained a unique view of what it means to act under pressure.

In his keynote he shows how managers

  • quickly get an idea of complex mixed situations
  • perceive diffuse signals and interpret them correctly
  • decide safely and courageously even under uncertainty
  • communicate efficiently and effectively
  • channel force and energy correctly and how to focus on the right thing

Bodo Antonic uses practical examples to illustrate what leads to success in management under pressure and uncertainty and what does not.

It guarantees aha effects on the question of why we run out of breath in business and in management more and more and what to do about it.

Dr. Antonic shares practical tips how managers can gain more impact and momentum in their demanding everyday business routine.

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.

Keynote Speaker

His activity as a keynote speaker rests on two pillars. On the one hand, he is relying on his experience as an interim manager, who has to initiate the turn for the better under pressure of time and resources in unknown territories. On the other hand, he benefits from his techniques and experiences as a rescue diver, who taught him to survive under pressure.
