Reset Your Leadership
Change can be exciting and visionary – but it can also be relentless and exhausting for the leaders who drive it. If we think about organizational change only as a rational process, we miss a critical piece – the emotional side of change.
Let’s take this opportunity to pause, reflect and reset our leadership outlook, post-pandemic. The world of work has shifted in many industries, and will continue to do so. Change is the only constant — so we need to build it into our everyday leadership, and get better at it. This session invites you to press the ‘refresh’ button on your own leadership style, and ‘reset’ so that you’re feeling focused on what’s most important for you and your teams in 2023.
