In the second episode of our Leadership in Challenging Times series, Gretchen Gagel hosts Mickey Connolly for a conversation about how organizations can face massive and seemingly insurmountable business challenges with authentic collaboration.
Mickey shares a story of an organization in the aviation industry facing what leadership saw as an inevitable strike that could affect company productivity long-term. Looking to strategize around post-strike recovery tactics, the question came up - well, what if we don't have a strike at all? Many had given up on that possibility. By bringing the right 40 stakeholders together to collectively represent the interests of thousands of employees, the conversation the organization needed to move forward became a reality.
