Amid Layoffs, Here Is How You Can Sharpen Your Team’s Business Acumen Skills and Motivate Them to Accomplish Fresh Goals

In today’s BANI (Brittle, Anxious, Non-linear, Incomprehensible) environment, business acumen and conversational intelligence are essential capabilities for leaders.

From being ‘A manager’ to becoming ‘The leader’ requires the ability to have an in-depth understanding of multiple facets that connects the business and its environment. The ability to converse in the language of business, calculate in the language of money and influence with integrity is becoming a necessity for leaders to thrive in this competitive environment.

The ability to connect the dots from your work to its monetary impact to the larger organizational vision is an important component of leadership. Without these critical capabilities, managers and leaders stagnate and slowly become irrelevant.

Leaders with good business acumen have better control over the changing complexities and ambiguities of the business world. Therefore, good business acumen and conversational intelligence clearly impacts the decision making and problem-solving capabilities of leaders in this BANI world.
