Resilience is what is tested when organisations are faced with something unexpected. Increasingly it’s resilience rather than risk that investors, shareholders, and oversight committees are interested in. Resilience lives outside of risk registers in the people, culture, and leadership of an organisation. Resilience does not happen by chance – it takes investment, development and refinement.
Is a tried and tested 8 hour programme that assesses and enhances the resilience of senior teams with a real-world tabletop exercise brought to life and facilitated by the Amicus team. Developed with methodology used by British military leaders and contingency planners for handling crises, participants spend a day being tested, in person, with key leadership principles identified and developed throughout.
