NEW! Next-Generation Power Skills: Leadership, Change, and Influence – How to DANCE with Increasing Uncertainty and Complexity with Jack Duggal

What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this training, learners will be able to: 

  • Make sense of today’s uncertain environment – learn to identify the DANCE.
  • Identify the characteristics of top-performing project and program leaders for thriving and going beyond resilience and getting stronger in tough times.
  • Review unconventional leadership, influence, and transformation mindset, skillset, toolset, and heartset necessary to thrive in today’s environment.


In today’s turbulent time, what kind of leadership is required to make sense of uncertainty? How can we navigate and influence ourselves, our teams, projects, programs, organizations, and our personal lives? How do we make sense of the increasing complexity and how it impacts our projects and programs? How do we get through this and manage in an increasingly unpredictable environment?

We are going to have to reflect, re-frame, renew, and rethink our approaches. This engaging course will challenge your existing beliefs of leadership and provoke you to think differently while providing new insights to deal with the current challenges you and your organization face. Using real-world examples and application, you will learn unconventional characteristics and practices of next-generation leadership to apply in your organization. Re-design, re-invent and prepare yourself for the never-normal!

The focus will be on discovering and tapping the relevant skills to develop the right operating system, mindset, skillset, toolset, and heartset to not only be resilient but go beyond and thrive to get stronger from adversity. Focusing on next-generation ideas, this training will reveal unconventional leadership and communications skills characteristic of the top-performing leaders. You will also learn how to tap into the power of AI to assess and develop PI – (project, program, portfolio, product – intelligence). 

You will learn to apply timely leadership insights and practical ideas and learn to thrive and DANCE on the edge of chaos!
