Creating a Responsive Organization
Presented by David William Lee, MSSBTI Executive Director

Today’s exponentially changing operating environment is just too fluid and unpredictable to rely on traditional methods devised over a century ago. As the drumbeat of business disruption grows, organizations must become more adaptable by unlocking emergent leadership and incorporating responsive value, talent and knowledge management techniques and structures. To be successful, teams must be inspired by confident, knowledgeable leaders who can elicit emergent performance. Rather than pursuing another version of the tangled matrix organization, the Responsive model takes from natural science and deep research in organizational development to create a value focused, talent rich, transparent, rapidly scalable, and highly adaptable approach.

This program explores the key elements for building a Responsive organization capable of thriving in a complex, less predictable environments.

7 Key Leadership Capabilities to be Future Ready in Disruptive Times
Presented by Joan Hibdon and Robin Postel, PhD

Leaders play a critical and essential role in the large and complex business equation. The ‘game’ of business changes daily and leaders around the globe are faced with situations when their business stalls for reasons hard to identify. When this happens, most leaders are quick to look at the competition, their systems, technology, processes or employees as a place to focus on and/or fix. Additionally, successful leaders are willing to consider and evaluate their own impact on the organization. And, what’s setting extraordinary leaders apart is their willingness to intentionally invest in and continually evolve their own leadership capabilities.
