Kiki: Is this a time of danger or opportunity?

Professor Nick Jennings VC at Loughborough University joins Andrea Burrows UK MD of OES and I. We argue that we need more leaders that can practice the art of Kiki. It would be easy at the start of 2024 for leaders to be overcome by the sense of danger and to be blinded from seeing opportunity.  Is the all-staff email to start the year in your university a trigger from leadership that will spiral a fragile culture and mood downwards? What is most needed is a response that stirs an ethical and rational approach to seeking opportunities.
