Everyone has promoted communication as one the most critical things needed for leading during times of crisis – with employees, investors, partners and customers. As companies begin contemplating what business will look like moving forward, as the pandemic continues and the economy is adjusting, the difficult conversations are shifting and there will be many challenges leaders will face as the CPG industry morphs into what will become the new normal during the recession.
Tim Krauss, CEO of Mammoth Creameries will share his perspectives and conversations as a leader he is having and Jennifer Cobb Moynihan, Principal of Elevate Communication will provide recommendations on how to approach tough conversations including having empathy while making difficult decisions, addressing employee and leader fatigue and transparency in having to rapidly respond in this new environment. This session will share new ways to frame conversations and discuss some of the most important considerations you will likely have to address including: 1. Keeping the business moving forward with consumer buying behaviors changing and investors looking more closely at their investments, 2. Creating blended work scenarios for the long term and 3. Continuing to care for your employees, customers and your culture.
