Learning from Traumatic Events

Disconnected Values

Traumatic events can highlight weaknesses in your operating model. The values of an organisation are challenged in times of adversity. Did your organisation live up to it’s values?  Is it time to review your them?

If you don’t find out how well you did, you risk the performance of your organisation as you emerge from the crisis.

Core Values

Learning from Adversity


When the trauma is over, the temptation is to breathe a sigh of relief and crack on with business as usual. It’s really tough to look back because of the need to focus on the future and people’s sensitivities when finding mistakes. 

But we learn far more from failure than success.

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.

Henry Ford
