In today’s turbulent times, what kind of leadership and communication are required to make sense of uncertainty? How can we navigate and support ourselves and our teams, projects, programs, organizations, and personal lives?

We are going to have to reflect, reframe, renew, and rethink our approaches. This engaging training will challenge your existing beliefs of leadership and provoke you to think differently and provide new insights to deal with the current challenges you and your organization face. Using current examples and illustrations, you will learn five unconventional characteristics of next-generation leadership to apply in your organization. Redesign, reinvent, and prepare yourself for the new normal in the post-pandemic world. 

The focus will be on discovering and tapping into the relevant skills to develop the right operating system and mindset to not only survive and become resilient, but to go beyond, thrive, and get stronger. Focusing on next-generation ideas, this training will reveal unconventional leadership and communication skills characteristic of the top-performing leaders. You will learn to apply timely leadership insights and practical ideas to help you DANCE on the edge of chaos!
