A Systems Approach to Modern Leadership

 

Event Description:

Many organizational change initiatives fail due to lackluster leadership support. This should not surprise us as we often find that just below the surface nothing has changed. We should not expect organizations to transform if we don't design an ecosystem that allows emergence and growth to thrive.

The future of leadership lies in the ability to cultivate this ecosystem. Modern leaders need to facilitate continuous change by seeing their organization as a system while simultaneously embracing uncertainty.

Attendees will leave this session with the ability to facilitate pragmatic practices they can use immediately to apply fundamental concepts about systems and uncertainty.
