Managing in Difficult Times

Overview

Managing a business in the past has always involved many moving parts, and has not been the simplest of tasks. Between handling the finances and operations, and effectively managing people – business management has been a challenging field that requires both skill and expertise.

Many of these challenges are compounded for managers and leaders, when they are forced to lead during times of crisis. This is incredibly relevant today, because many businesses have faced extremely difficult times during the international pandemic. Businesses are going under, and managers are struggling to keep up with changing regulations and changing customer interactions. Managers need to be able to effectively manage their businesses, and the people within the businesses if they are to succeed.

During times of crisis and challenge, managers simply cannot slow down or back away from a challenge. In fact, as Jan Rutherford - a US army veteran, author, leader, and coach on the subject of management and leadership - states, these difficult times are when managers and leaders need to pull up their socks and buckle down.

In Managing Through Difficult Times, Rutherford takes us through the steps of how to effectively manage during difficult times, and the different strategies that leaders and managers can employ to ensure their business and their employees succeed. He discusses the importance of communication, and how it is critical that managers use different perspectives to understand problems. He shows how managers can use innovation, teaming, and other strategies to manage employees – and he shows how these practices can be used together to ensure effective management no matter the challenge.
