Nothing is Intractable: Leading change in times of change
A two-day Adaptive Action Leadership Lab that provides down-to-earth and practical, but extraordinarily powerful, tools and insights for effective leadership through times of change and transition.
What is your biggest leadership challenge? Are you surprised by your market, millennials, regulatory environment, board members, technology, competition? Do you worry about the future you cannot predict or control?
Learn to leverage uncertainty to create competitive advantage. Chaos and uncertainty don't lead to answers, but they can inspire really good questions. In this two-day Adaptive Action Lab, you will bring your stickiest issue, practice new concepts and tools, and leave with your next wise action. Even more than that, you will build a foundation for the future of your wise and effective leadership. This program is both innovative and practical. You will join other leaders from across the community to see your challenges in new ways, understand multiple perspectives, and take action to influence a future you cannot predict or control.
Who Should Attend:
- Senior leaders that are accountable for setting and delivering on organizational visions and plans
- Mid level to senior level managers that operate at a strategic level and often encounter complex problems that need to be solved
- Executive Directors of organizations that have to continually learn to do more with less
- Government administrative leaders that are looking to find new ways to solve old problems to change and improve the delivery model to their citizens
- Learn how to operate in ambiguity and uncertainty
- Develop the skills to resolve complex problems quickly
- Learn to recognize patterns and resolve the root causes vs the surface issues
- Walk away with having a simple tool set that you can apply on a daily basis within your organization to improve efficiencies and effectiveness at a broad level
