LEADERSHIP FOR A FRACTURED WORLD: How to Cross boundaries, Build bridges and Lead Change

THE PROGRAM + WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

Today we live in a crazy and fractured world—a world filled with surprise, uncertainty, complexity, and abundant divisions. There are great dangers but also tremendous opportunities. The reality is that most organizations struggle to figure out how to navigate the confusing terrain, respond to complexity, sustain performance, change fast enough, and get meaningful goals accomplished. Where is the leadership? What kind of leadership is needed?

Today’s leaders need to be dynamic change agents—leaders who can cross boundaries, build bridges, and lead change. They must be open-minded, courageous, passionate, and imaginative. They must be able to help people transcend the “tribal impulse” to do the adaptive work of change and address shared and interdependent problems.
