Future-Proof Leadership

With NOBL, Sarah Dickinson and Erin Cooper

September 1 - 6, 2020

You must apply before you can register. Click here to apply.

Business is in a state of “permanent whitewater”: perpetually uncertain, and increasingly complex. As a result, ambitious, compassionate leaders find themselves asking:

  • How do we adapt ourselves with greater intention and ease, and what kinds of self-knowledge can accelerate our personal evolution?
  • How does an organization’s culture amplify or limit its people’s ability to change?
  • How do organizations recover, persist and strengthen resilience amid disruption?
  • And, how can we radically improve the collaboration that currently stands in the way of system-level solutions?

To thrive in this rapidly changing environment, leaders must be agile, self-aware, and emotionally resilient; keen to continually modify their own methods and attitudes to keep pace. In partnership with NOBL, a consultancy that transforms company cultures, we’ll look at change through three interconnected domains: self, organizational, and systemic. Across each, we’ll examine provocative perspectives, real-world lessons, and actionable tools, giving you the skills you need to increase your organization’s adaptability—as well as your own.

 What you’ll walk away with:

  • New insight into the physiological, emotional and social dimensions of change and why adaptation and resilience are the needs of our time 
  • Understanding of how self-aware, emotionally-reliable leaders behave differently and are more resilient to the forces of the VUCA world
  • Mechanisms to self-reflect and more effectively manage yourself amidst uncertainty and change
  • How to effectively lead cross-functional groups and networks through shared vision and responsibility. 
  • Ways to overcome barriers to change at an individual and group level
  • Lasting friendships and a peer learning community of senior global leaders 
  • Tools, frameworks, and practices for making lasting organizational and culture change
