Event description
This highly interactive session will examine the key leadership challenges facing organisations as we prepare for a new world of work.

About this event

By unfreezing past constraints, the COVID-19 wrecking ball has provided organisations with a once in a lifetime opportunity for driving change and transformation; excising the legacy technologies and leadership approaches that stifle innovation.

With the genie being out of the bottle in terms of new ways of working, there is no going back to ‘the way things have always been done around here’.

To emerge stronger from the current crisis, organisations will need to leverage the ‘innovations born of necessity’ in 2020 to build resilient, modern, intelligent, innovative workplaces fit-for-purpose in a VUCAD world – Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous and Digital.

To seize the moment, do we need to reimagine leadership, turning much of our existing thinking on its head?

"Only 12 percent of senior executives ‘strongly agreed' that business leaders in their organisation have the right mindsets to lead them forward in an uncertain world."

As a change leader, we would be delighted if you could join us for the Reimagine Leadership Virtual Roundtable sharing your experiences, hopes and expectations for the future.

About the Roundtable

Facilitated by Dr. Jim Hamill, the highly interactive session will examine the key challenges facing leaders as we prepare for a new world of work.

  • Leadership lessons learned from the disruption of 2020.
  • Strategy: In an era of pervasive uncertainty, is a radical, blue ocean, scorched earth approach to strategy development and strategic management required?
  • Organisation, People, Culture: How do we excise the legacy structures, management thinking and cultures stifling innovation; unleashing the creative potential of our people and high-performing teams, breaking free from the cultural norms of the past?
  • Technology: How can we leverage the full potential of existing and emerging technologies to support new ways of working, building organisational resilience, reimagining how we engage with customers, how we operate internally, transforming our underlying business model in the process?
  • Leadership: What are the key traits of a successful leader of change for a VUCAD world? Do we need to turn our traditional thinking about leadership on its head? What new approaches to leadership development are required?
  • Do our organisations have the leadership dexterity to seize the moment?

We hope you can join us on Thursday 17th June, sharing your experience with the group.

The format of the session will be a short Panel Discussion followed by a Q&A session. The session will be highly interactive and participative.

A live Chat Forum will run in parallel with the main session to maximise group participation and discussion.
