Leading Change In A VUCA World – GIODN Webinar

October 3, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EDT

Today’s business leaders face both incredible opportunities and difficult dilemmas. These days the market environment is often described with words such as: Disrupt. Align. Transform and Sustain.  In this era marked by ever increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA), businesses are failing to develop the leadership that is needed to successfully navigate through rapidly changing circumstances.  Leaders are often making decisions among competing priorities, while knowing the next disruption is just around the corner, and yet no roadmap exists.

The current traditional leadership tools and frameworks fail to provide the guidance and accountability for leaders to address both business and societal needs.  Success must be redefined based on a Triple Bottom Line (economic, environmental, and social) focus versus a “bottom-line” only focus.  Additionally, business leaders must be guided to have curiosity, courage and commitment to address the social and people issues.  As   competition for toptalent, innovative services and products, and new global markets intensifies, the traditional rulebooks, rigid iconic image of the heroic leader, and functional silos are being discarded.

Our webinar Leading Change In A VUCA World, led by Mercedes Martin will share the company’s research findingson leading change, sustainability and inclusion. Participants will:

  • Explore new frames to lead in the VUCA world
  • Share ways to transform and sustain leaders and business
  • Identify new ways that the organization culture can enhance team performance
