About the class

In today’s complex times, leadership is becoming more and more critical. Today, the landscape is full of uncertainty for all organizations and leaders. This deep uncertainty calls for a change in attitude for many leaders who are used to having answers. The traditional model of the leader-hero who saves the day knows it all, is the smartest person in the room, and is too often driven by power, fame, glory, or money is not appropriate in today’s environment. In this session, we will discuss some of the characteristics and behaviors for leaders to thrive in today’s world and some of the new attitudes and skills that leaders need to develop.

What you’ll take home :

Enhanced understanding of some of the leadership challenges in today’s complex world

Improved ability to recognize some of the attitudes and behaviors of successful leaders

Space to reflect on your own leadership behavior
