In a post Covid world the prefix ‘re’ has taken on even more prominence in our lexicon.
Words like reset, reboot, rebuild, repurpose and reorganise are all now liberally sprinkled into headlines and into our conversations. For Jonathan Trevor, Associate Professor of Management Practice here at Saïd Business School, the most important word is realign.
Realignment for Jonathan is not just another catchphrase or a reaction to this moment of disruption in our lives. He points out that unfortunately, there will never be a period of stability or a period without any disruption and so ‘the trick for organisations is not to fixate about Covid-19 or a potential recession but to focus on how to respond effectively.’ In his new book Re:Align Jonathan has sought to explore one issue: ‘How can leaders make better choices to align and realign their enterprise to overcome disruption and improve performance on a sustainable basis?’
In Re:Align - A Leadership Blueprint for Overcoming Disruption and Improving Performance, Jonathan provides a plan to help leaders ask good questions, have better conversations and make the best possible choices, to realign their enterprise to be fit for purpose. Re:Align offers both a thoughtful and compelling message, as well as an effective toolkit to help leaders everywhere to overcome disruption and improve enterprise performance.
