Leading in a Changing World
What you need to know as a leader in the new world of work
Leaders are often frustrated that they can’t mobilize their teams to adapt quick enough to this ever changing world. They often feel the horizon of their strategic plans rushing ever closer, resulting in decision-making that often feels closer to guesswork than science. These leaders can battle to manage their teams. They don’t get the most out of their talent and can battle to develop successions plans.
Leading in a Changing World is a powerful and motivating presentation designed to elicit new leadership behaviour. The presentation starts by providing compelling evidence as to the shifting leadership context, and then proceeds to uncover what leaders need to know, do, and be, in order to lead confidently and effectively into an uncertain and adaptive future.
The leadership framework / model applied is that of ‘Invitational Leadership’ – A sound theoretical and practical springboard to the practice of inclusive leadership.
Invitational Leadership is built on three assumptions and a ‘therefore’ implication for the leader.
The three assumptions are:
- There is a best in everyone
- Everybody has a valid contribution to make and,
- Everyone would rather make that contribution than not (to make it),
Therefore, the role and responsibility of the leader is to build an inviting environment – one that invites the best out of everyone.
This presentation offers practical insights and motivating examples as to how to be an ‘invitational leader’ through the practice of respect, intentionality, optimism and trust.
Invitational Leadership is a profoundly simple yet practical leadership framework that importantly works across cultures and is able to be interpreted into whatever setting and context is necessary. We have presented this keynote (and applied the framework) throughout Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas.
This participative, hard-hitting and ‘edu-entertaining’ keynote/workshop brings together the very best of TomorrowToday’s extensive and diverse global experience in helping leaders understand the new leadership agenda.
