Future Human Behaviour - Going in & out of Crisis

It is time to envision how human behaviour will change the coming years now that society is hit by three crises in a row - Covid, Ukraine & a (pending) recession, whilst the climate crisis is ongoing. How will all of this affect our behaviour? Decision-making? And leadership? Amidst these crises, organisations are trying to invent the wheel when it comes to hybrid/remote work and welcoming the next generation of talent: Gen Z. One thing is certain: from a behavioural perspective, the coming years will be quite a rollercoaster. Leaders have to brace themselves ánd guide their teams through this. Staying mentally healthy will prove to be more important than ever.
