Simulate, Exercise & Collaborate

The area of cyber crisis management training/exercise is vast and different across industries. What we include in addition is the layer of emotional intelligence. Information is processed first through the limbic part of the brain where all the emotions are processed, before it goes to the rational part of the brain.

Often in times of crisis, people revert back to decision-making, problem solving and leadership skills from their limbic part if they have a lower level of self awareness and social intelligence. It is because the amygdala part of the brain is activated when we experience high levels of stress.

The pandemic has taken uncertainty, anxiety and unknown to another level as no one really knows what the NEXT looks like.

So exercising this in safe spaces to include human behavioural science and emotional intelligence will tap into the full human potential in navigating the new digital space. In the end, behind every system, institutions and departments there are people who influence the course of actions.

As Theodore Roosevelt said: No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care.

If we want to build trust again, then we we need a renewed leadership approach that is people centric.

Nadja impeccably designed and facilitated a two-part online EQ training for a dozen emerging leaders from the Eastern Partnership countries. She was a real pleasure to work with and I greatly appreciated her creativity, good sense of humor, openness to dialogue and flexibility to build a training program for a diverse group of individuals. Through a mix of crisis simulations, role play, presentations on how emotions impact the ability to make decisions and one-on-one coaching, Nadja helped each of the members of the group become better decision-makers and increase their impact in their communities. Nadja is a passionate coach and leader, and an inspiration to all those she helps grow. I strongly recommend her to any organization that works on leadership development.
