The Future of Leadership: Build Better Relationships, Elevate Your Impact, Bulletproof Your Culture in a Hyper Connected Digital World.
For future-focused organizations to succeed in the age of the networks and digital transformation, a bold approach to leadership is needed. An approach where freedom, agility, trust and experimentation are not only embraced but encouraged.
Unfortunately, while our advancement in technology has equipped us to navigate the disruptive waters of change, our leadership ethos has not. Today, many of our organizations unconsciously operate from an industrial age leadership mindset that undervalues unconventional thinking, discourages full transparency, deters initiative, frustrates experimentation and allows people to play small all despite our best efforts. Why are we stuck? What’s blocking our ability to shift mindsets and embrace the future of leadership and ultimately ignite the workforce of the future?
Seth will provide a road map for anticipating the strategic challenges that demand fundamentally new
thinking. Inspire leaders to break free from obsolete mental models that limit growth and transformation. And help leaders build tomorrow’s best practices today to compete and win in the new networked world of work.
