A Toolkit for Leading in Times of Crisis
The demands on today’s corporate leaders are becoming ever more complex.
From dealing with globalised viruses, such as Covid19, to the impact of AI, climate change and political risk, leaders need to be confident and realistic about the challenges they face and the attributes they need. What are these qualities, how do they support good decision-making, and can they be learned?
Join us for a panel discussion with Nick Van Dam, Chief Learning Officer at IE University, Jacqueline Brassey, Director of Learning at Mckinsey & Co. to debate such fundamental issues as:
- How to feel safe in times of constant change?
- How to help your teams to continue performing despite fast-changing circumstances
- How important is self-knowledge when learning to lead?
- Can anyone develop the confidence and skills to lead?
