Leading in a Changing World
Wed, May 10, 2017, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM EDT
Leading in a Changing World is designed to help ensure that as a leader you, and your company, are ‘futurefit’. The workshop explores the importance of understanding the radically changing context facing leaders, identifies the key disruptive forces driving the change before asking ‘what does this mean for leaders at both a personal and organizational level?’. Drawing on TomorrowToday’s extensive international experience and cross-sector engagement, Leading in a Changing World is packaged as a dynamic and participative experience designed to provide a lasting and practical impact on one’s leadership thinking and practice. The workshop is a popular choice amongst business schools, including London Business School, Duke CE and Insead, in their numerous global Executive Leadership Development Programs in places including Russia, China, South Africa, the USA, UK, Europe and Brazil.
