The Case for Audacious Leadering
Society is transforming and advancing technologies are rapidly reinventing the ways we work, live and connect. And reshaping ways we lead. Instead of predictably replicating the success of the past, leaders must now embrace and navigate these new opportunities, the need for constant innovation and the demands of an increasingly dynamic environment. Being open to radical new solutions requires radically new ways of thinking, "leadering," and being. Nancy Giordano delivers an infectious presentation that highlights the key areas for leaders to act boldly and in ways that will make a major difference to the strategic future of the organization.
Reinvent Your Leadership Mindset For the Future
There is so much we are waking up to and won't be able to "unlearn”: about the role of technology and new ways of working, about equitable access and our unjust history, about our impact on the environment, and importantly, about the reliability of our support systems. We are learning so much about our own resilience and tuning in more deeply into our own lives and values. What will we do with all this emerging insight? What will we choose to rebuild vs reinvent? All of these awakenings create fascinating opportunities for business and leadership as we learn to navigate constant change with greater confidence and caring.
Just One Percent In: Learning to Navigate the Next Economy
The world as we knew is over. And though the pain this has caused is very real, it now opens opportunities for reinvention most of us couldn't even imagine just six months ago. When you speak with the visionaries and entrepreneurs actually building the technology applications of tomorrow and ask how far into this new era we are, almost universally the reply is: "only one percent." And change will happen fast. We are at the front end of a new era and have important choices to make about the future we want to see - so let's explore what's on the horizon, what makes this moment especially potent and what it will take to build a better next.
The Four Pandemic Awakenings Shaping the New Economy
Clearly there is no sitting on the sidelines anymore. One of the most stunning and lingering things about the global pandemic is that suddenly everyone is being thrust into this new era, together. Ready or not. Emerging from this are four massive shifts in awareness and behavior that are reshaping our understanding of business, society, technology and ourselves... and offer a lot of hope ahead.
