Leadership in Times of Crisis

Leadership in Times of Crisis

Leadership in Times of Crisis is a video project on social media aimed at supporting businesses during unprecedented, historic, and challenging times for the whole world with the COVID-19 outbreak. AmCham Ukraine launched the Leadership in Times of Crisis project in April 2020 to give members a platform to communicate, share insights, and personal experience on how to lead through the coronavirus storm with maximum benefit for the company, employees, customers, and country.

In October, AmCham Ukraine won AmChams in Europe Creative Network Award 2020 for this project. The Leadership in Times of Crisis project has been recognized as the best creative network project among AmChams in 43 countries.

"Collaboration becomes important in this new era of sales. We need to be open to communication, embrace technology and be creative. Building partnerships, structuring deals that involve several organizations is really helpful. A positive mindset is crucial. Stay positive, stay focused. Let's work together, and I think we will get through this. We are stronger together than individually," Arthur Olshansky, CEO at Klik.Ukraine, for our #LeadershipInTimesOfCrisis. Thank you, Arthur, for the exciting interview.

“What we tried to do was to reduce the uncertainty as much as possible with our clients and team members at the beginning of the lockdown. We try to be flexible in terms of leadership. There are also key qualities as empathy to really understand the juggling of what we all are going through personally and helping colleagues establish work-personal life boundaries, as it is so easy for these boundaries to blur now. Focusing is also important – what are the priorities to get us through this crisis as a business. Normality will come back. We all need to look at what changes we can bring into teams, to our leadership after the crisis. Ultimately, we can hopefully emerge from the crisis stronger and better," Chris Dobson, Executive Partner at Kesarev for our #LeadershipInTimesOfCrisis. Many thanks to Chris for sharing.

"Every crisis starts and ends, but there are fundamental values upon which great businesses should be built. What is leadership for me? First of all, it's a straight-set approach. You need to decide what is the most important thing for your company. We decided that these are people. We understood that it's vital to help our people to go through these turbulent times. People are the most important asset of the business, and we need to take care of them. We set up a series of webinars on resilience and psychological state to support our team. We all will remember this time as one that is important because of the people around us, our society," Yevhen Sergeev, CEO at iDeals Solutions Group for our #LeadershipInTimesOfCrisis. Many thanks to Yevhen for the great interview.

"Leadership in all kinds of crisis is about communication. The immediate reaction to any crisis is to get the team together, address people, hear their concerns. This particular crisis is interesting because you can't do that. There is no way to get together. So, we try to leverage online tools to get in front of people as much as we could. We need to be grateful that Ukraine manages this crisis better than the last ones. There is no reason to be scared, no reason to panic. We will apply the same rational approaches we applied in the past, which will serve as dividends. When times are good, do not neglect relationships - build up a bank of trust that will pay dividends in times of crisis," Petro Rondiak, Head of the Management Board, Winner Group Ukraine for our #LeadershipInTimesOfCrisis. We are grateful to Petro for his leadership and for sharing exciting thoughts.
