The Next Generation Leadership
According to some analysts, we are not simply experiencing a downturn in the business cycle, but a complete shift in the economic order, with a long-term impact on the world of business. While no one can say how long this will last and what the new normal will look like, there are certainly some fundamental principles that can help leaders prepare themselves and their businesses for the possibilities and uncertainties that tomorrow will bring.
What are the skills that leaders need in order to guide their business through and beyond this shift? How to focus on long term results while dealing with short term crises?
Join us for a virtual panel discussion led by Adam Kingl, business educator and author of Next Generation Leadership, to debate these and other questions and understand what the new normal means for your business and your teams.
