During this exclusive event, Professor Tom Malnight and Executive-in-Resident Kees van der Graaf will share and discuss the first series of insights from their recently completed Power of Balance Research Project.

The research project involved 80 face-to-face interviews with CEO’s and other leaders from companies and organizations around the world .The focus of this research has been on the leadership challenges of preparing businesses, organizations, and leaders for success in the 5-10 year time horizon, particularly given projections of growing volatility and ambiguity in future markets.

During this discovery event we will be examining the challenge of building businesses around relationships, not transactions, which in turn impacts how leaders and businesses structure their relationships with consumers, employees, society and their owners.

The event will also include:

Overview of the research findings

Understanding the major challenges facing organizations in the next 5-10 years

Moving from hiring and retaining employees to engaging employees

Moving consumer relationships from emphasizing products to experiences

Re-building relationships with Owners and Society around long term value creation

Characteristics of sustained successful leadership

Who should attend:
This event is primarily for senior business leaders currently focused on short term operational demands and who aspire to become accomplished leaders for tomorrow, seeking to build successful organizations within a 5 to 10 year horizon.
