Guest: Alan Caslavka, a coach at CEO Coaching International. Alan spent his 35-year career in the global aerospace and defense markets, leading businesses within General Electric Aviation and Rockwell Collins Aerospace.
Quick Background: Running a successful company is never easy. But it's certainly a lot more fun when the going is good. The true test of a CEO's skill comes when adversity strikes. How will you lead your company through an inflationary environment where your key customers can't afford what you're selling? How are you going to handle a round of painful but necessary layoffs? How will you pivot through the next global crisis none of us sees coming so that your company stays on track to Make BIG Happen?
On today's show, Alan Caslavka lays out his roadmap for responding to adversity, including lessons he learned from running an aeronautics firm while COVID had his entire industry grounded.
