In a rapidly changing world, organizations should implement new creative leadership models. In this webinar, Professor Ancona, Founder of the MIT Leadership Center, will present five key points for succeeding in a world of uncertainty in which leaders must become more flexible and adaptable. Leaders must possess the skills to track an ever-shifting environment and cultivate those skills in others. They need to create flexible teams that collaborate effectively with both internal and external partners. They must inspire their organizations to solve big problems and they can’t do all this alone — they need to bring in adaptive leaders at all levels, giving them autonomy to innovate but providing guardrails to prevent chaos. During this webinar, she will focus on these issues and, in particular, on:
- discovering one’s way of leading and communicating one’s values
- applying new types of successful team-building models as a vehicle for innovation and development
- improving distributed leadership models by encouraging ownership at all levels in one’s organization
- avoiding toxic tendencies that denigrate a leader’s reputation and fostering challenging leadership.
