Topics: Leadership Development | Communication and Presentation Skills | Complexity

In today’s turbulent time, what kind of leadership and communications is required to make sense of uncertainty? How can we navigate and support ourselves, our teams, projects, programs, organizations, and our personal lives? How do we make sense of the new normal in the post-pandemic world 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, reframe, renew, and rethink our approaches. This engaging seminar will challenge your existing beliefs of leadership and provoke you to think differently and provide new insights to deal with 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. Re-design, re-invent and prepare yourself for the new normal in the post-COVID 19 world. 

The focus will be on discovering and tapping the relevant skills to develop the right operating system and mindset to not only survive and become resilient but go beyond and thrive and get stronger. Focusing on next-generation ideas, this seminar will reveal unconventional leadership and communications skills characteristic of the top performing leaders.
