In Conversation with Betsy Myers: Six Emerging Leadership Trends for the 21st Century

Simon Fraser University's Beedie School of Business and Surrey Campus are thrilled to invite you to attend a Conversation with Betsy Myers, where she discusses six emerging leadership trends for the 21st Century.

Leadership is undergoing a radical transformation as we enter the third decade of the 21st century. Indeed, C-Level executives and managers at both large and small companies are being challenged as never before by unprecedented changes in technology, demographics and the global economy. Responding and adapting to these sweeping shifts requires a breakthrough leadership approach that inspires people, builds community and establishes bonds of trust, commitment and connection. Simply put, the successful new leader for the 21st century must skillfully integrate an array of hard and soft traits and tools. This keynote will explain and analyze the six key trends that are causing disruption in our companies and organizations:

  • A new leadership model -- the integration of head and heart
  • A new leadership profile based on authenticity and self-knowledge
  • A new work model that focuses on purpose as much as productivity
  • The empowerment of women and millennials
  • Community building and the development of a much-needed sense of belonging
  • Merging people and ideas from the old and new generations
