HR Insights - The Podcast: Covid-19 Mini Series. Mentoring Your Team Through A Crisis

Stuart Elliott

By Stuart Elliott


In this special three episode spin off of HR Insights – The Podcast Stuart Elliott, CEO and Owner of Elliott Scott HR and Susannah Yule, Director at YSC Consulting New York discuss three key areas: Resilience, Leadership and the Team Dynamic. All pertinent Covid-19 business issues raised by our HR Community.

The first bite sized episode looks at Resilience. In the early stages of lockdown we needed the Resilience for a sprint but now as each country moves in and out of lockdown, we need to be prepared for a marathon. Susannah shares how we can both ask for help from our organisations, cultivating Resilience personally and how businesses and leaders should role model and develop Resilience in their teams. Originally from New Zealand where she trained as a Business Psychologist, Susannah’s global career began in London working for Kaisen Consulting (acquired by Deloitte). She then moved to YSC Consulting and has been with them for six years, working in Mumbai, moving to Hong Kong where she ran the practice there for three years and now New York, where she has joined the North America leadership team.
