About The Program

Technological trends and environmental paradigm shifts abound. How will leaders effectively adapt, engage, motivate and build trust in our era of Covid19, a wavering global economy, and build relationship when there is a deficit of trust.

Important Topics covered include:

  • Understanding the big picture - Holistic impact to cultural change and organizational performance.
  • How to build coalitions of cultural diversity around servant leadership
  • Creating theories of change in behavior growth and trust (e.g. Learning Organizations)
  • The shift from what’s in it for me to “What’s in it for the WE”.
