Forbes recently published an article featuring insight from Moshe Cohen, Senior Lecturer of Management and Organizations, on how United Kingdom Prime Minister, Boris Johnson poorly handled the crises leading up to his resignation.
After months of controversy, Johnston’s decision to resign became unavoidable. His actions were an example to business leaders around the world of what not to do during a crisis; namely, failing to be trustworthy and transparent with constituents.
“A leader needs to be present and among the people during [a] crisis, rather than holed up at 10 Downing Street, and needs to provide the organization with clear, consistent, and truthful communication. This is as true with corporate executives managing a business crisis as it is with political leaders.”Moshe Cohen
The situation leading to Johnson’s resignation was an illustration of a failure to adopt Moshe’s recommended model, with Johnson’s behavior lacking communication, loyalty, and appropriate corrective action for his faults.
