Lessons from a Warzone
How to be a Resilient Leader in Times of Crisis
A new approach to business strategy in difficult times from a conflict like no other
A STORY OF HOPE, PERSEVERANCE AND RESILIENCE IN THE MIDST OF CHAOS
Louai Al Roumani was head of finance and planning at one of the largest banks in Syria when the war broke out in 2011.
In Lessons from a Warzone, Al Roumani shares his very personal account of coping with the day-to-day realities of leading an organization in dangerous and hostile conditions. His story shows how inspiration can come from the unlikeliest of places, and how a business can not only survive in chaos, but can learn to thrive - the bank became the undisputed sector leader as people's trust in its capability to protect their life-long savings strengthened.
In this book, Al Roumani distils the knowledge and skills he and his colleagues developed while steering the bank through four impossible years into ten lessons applicable to any leader facing a crisis today. His valuable and often counterintuitive advice will help anyone understand how to be resilient even in the most challenging of times.
