  High Performance Leading in Times of Change and Uncertainty

IMD has the pleasure to invite you to our Business Forum:

  • When: Tuesday, June 19, 2007
  • Topic: High Performance Leading in Times of Change and Uncertainty

George Kohlrieser, Professor of Organizational Behaviour at IMD, will discuss "High Performance:  Leading in Times of Change and Uncertainty - the Challenge for High Performing Leaders". Focusing on what leaders need to understand and do to create stability in an unstable world, we will examine what followers need in order to remain fully committed, highly motivated, and deeply engaged to achieve maximum results.

The latest research demonstrates that the mindset of the leader is the key. When leaders create a sense of security even in the most uncertain and dangerous environment, followers are protected from all the negative consequences of uncertainty. Once the correct mindset is in place, the behavior and language of the leader become their most powerful tool to influence and persuade others to collaborate and stay fully involved. This can be done with or without formal authority.

The leader as a lighthouse becomes the anchor to handle the big and small storms to help keep followers aliened regardless of how much turmoil surrounds them. Drawing on the studies of high performance leadership from business, sports, education, team and personal achievement - we will translate this cutting edge knowledge to the real world of leading in times of uncertainty.

The presentation will be followed by a networking gathering. A detailed agenda for the evening is attached to this e-mail.  Simultaneous translation from English to Portuguese will be provided. This event is free of charge.

IMD, the Brazilian IMD Alumni Club and CRASP - Conselho Regional de Administraçao de São Paulo through Stein Jacobsen, IMD Corporate Development Director would be pleased to welcoming you to this highly interactive event.
