EP#56: Planning for Uncertainty

COVID-19 has accelerated the uptake of digital technology and brought about a greater awareness of wellbeing and productivity, particularly in times of crisis. It has forced a new way of working for teams, organisations and individuals. So, what are the lessons that we’ve learned from the past couple of years and what do we need to do to ensure that we can create and sustain high performing organisations throughout this time of change? What are the building blocks for improving performance and productivity and how do we manage and sustain not just our own performance, but the performance of the people who we lead at this time?

In this week’s episode we are joined by two former federal APS Departmental Secretaries who are now part of the team at Proximity. Glenys Beauchamp PSM is the Principal Advisor of Proximity’s health and industry practices and Kerri Hartland is a Principal Advisor and Chair of their Advisory Board. Listen as they chat to David Pembroke, contentgroup Founder and CEO, in a conversation originally recorded as a webinar between contentgroup and Proximity.

Discussed in this episode:

  • New ways of problem solving.
  • The importance of planning, no matter the situation.
  • Risk management and mitigation in the APS.
  • The APS response to misinformation.
