Session: Leading in Times of Change
As leaders know, change is constant. But the disruption brought by the pandemic for the past few years has given this a whole new meaning! Not only is the change continuous, but it is ubiquitous across the way we work to how we manage our wellbeing to our social engagements and more. In addition, the change is rapid as seen by the accelerated adoption of emerging technologies like Digital Workspace, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Services etc.
With so much overlapping change and no reset expected, how can leaders stay effective? How can leaders rise to the challenge and create a positive impact at a broader level, that may also help define their personal leadership legacy?
This is a unique opportunity to not just survive but to adapt to the changing dynamic, reimagine the best possible future to thrive and emerge as transformational leaders.
This presentation shares how successful leaders in diverse roles and industries are defining the new normal in their fields and positioning their organizations for opportunities in that new normal. Join this session to learn practical strategies and tactics typically applied to provide clarity in face of ambiguity, rally the teams towards a shared purpose and deliver results in constrained environments.
