The Chartered Management Institute are highly focused on helping managers to remain effective and well motivated during this Covid-19 crisis period.
Here is an extract from the CMI's Executive Summary to 'Managing the New Normal. A Practical Guide to Navigating the Impacts of COVID-19'
The COVID-19 crisis is the ultimate test of management and leadership – a sudden, dramatic, life-threatening upheaval, where the outcomes are uncertain.
In this extraordinarily difficult time, the value of great management and leadership is being demonstrated every day – whether it’s senior leaders in government or managers on the front line of healthcare and retail.
To support these managers and leaders as they navigate the crisis – both for themselves and for those they manage – the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) has assembled a set of tried-and-tested tools and resources.
These tools are brought together by the CMI in this Better Managers Manual, are designed around five key themes that the pandemic has presented us:
- flexible working
- crisis management
- mental health & well being
- the new employment landscape
- and the new good governance.
