Covid-19 has intensified business decision-making and many of the control and negotiation tactics that leaders apply are no longer relevant. The environment requires leaders to adopt new strategies to navigate the multiple pressures and demands they face.

Dr. Crispen Sachikonye, a researcher from the University of Manchester, applies what he has learnt from studying and working with UK charities that operate in Africa to explain how leaders tend to behave in complex environments. He argues that the various constraints facing business mean it is less likely for business leaders to behave normally and more likely for them to become political in their actions. He presents a framework for political behaviour that has been demonstrated by boards and suggests how these behaviours can be applied mindfully.
