Currently, the biggest item on top of any CEO’s to-do list is creating, shaping and transforming their organization’s culture to be more responsive to change. CEO’s and organizational leaders talk about the values of integrity, trust, empowerment, leader development and learning as essential within the new environment of VUCA Management. Tonight’s guest speakers, Dr. Jodi Wilson, Ms. Britta Eremit and Prof. Mark Reeson will guide you through the hazards of this ever-changing environment. The audience will understand how to prepare and manage the VUCA environment individually and organizationally through emotional intelligence and change management.
Your speakers will demonstrate how business professionals reinforce these values, through personal experience, ensuring a cascade throughout the organization. In the changing world that we now live and work, disruption is as great as we have ever seen, meaning we are all seeing aspects of VUCA. By delivering change through organizational development with effective leadership, it will help you shape and reinforce your future business culture.
