‘LEADERSHIP AND LEARNING IN A CHANGING WORLD: LESSONS FROM NEW ZEALAND’
AS SOCIETIES AND BUSINESSES COPE WITH THE NEW NORMAL, THE PRIORITIES FOR LEADERSHIP HAVE CHANGED
2020 has so far been a year of great challenge and disruption. The implications of this leadership, work and learning have been rapid and are continuing.
As the outbreak continues to move quickly, some of the perspectives and strategies may rapidly fall out of date. We are witnessing an imminent restructuring to the global economic order, where societies and businesses are having to cope with the ‘new normal’. The economic upheaval is forcing companies to view digitalisation not only as a strategically important issue, but a necessity at the present time.
The post-pandemic world will be a very different place to live in. Digitalisation has now created an even larger leadership gap in companies around the world but as we are witnessing, venturing into the unknown is now viewed as an opportunity rather than a challenge.
So how has COVID-19 changed the priorities for leadership? What are the leadership traits that we should hold on to during this transition and those that we must cultivate, as businesses pivot from a crisis management mindset to a more creative and innovative one to survive the brutal short term in order to thrive in the long run? This webinar session looks into a hybrid approach towards leadership, simplifying the qualities that combine technology and human ingenuity towards the creation of a trusted and purposeful organisation that is resilient and innovative beyond 2020. There will be no ‘return to normal’.
This special webinar will provide a broad overview on all these areas, including best practice examples from around the world, tools leader can use immediately and the opportunity to explore this further in the panel discussion.
1.How leadership and wellbeing are closely linked – and why this matters even more now
2.Communicating with transparency and empathy in turbulent times – the two most important aspects to this
3.Lessons in leadership from the New Zealand response
4.Why it is critical to developing leadership skills in the digital era – minus the resistance, fear & anxiety
5.Why leadership and learning are over complicated, and what this now needs to look like in the new world of work
• What does this mean for you as a leader
• What needs to happen within your organisation and industry
• What you need to be thinking about now to best prepare for future ‘norms’
• Simple learning and leadership tools you can use immediately
