Courageous Conversation Series

At a time when everyone is worried about what will happen next, we invite leaders to park their anxiety, and reflect on the here and now. By examining what is truly important to us, we can decide what we must we hang on to, and what are we be prepared to let go of.

Registration limited to the top 150 of organizations. Please note that only 70 top level executives spaces are available/session and only 3 executives per organization/session are admitted.

Courageous Conversation Series

COVID-19 has disrupted our lives and our work in ways that will have reverberations for years to come. No one knows yet what kind of an inflection point the crisis will turn out to be; but we know a lot about how leaders like you can influence the impact it will have on the culture of your organizations.

In this session with Professor John Weeks, he will talk about consistent, insistent and persistent in decision making in leadership. He will also cover the impact leaders can have as role models during this period of flux, and the opportunity it presents to have a positive impact of any organization’s culture.

Courageous Conversation Series

Organizations today are confronted with a more uncertain future than ever before, making it difficult to anticipate and adapt to change. Oftentimes, until it is too late. The business landscape is complex and ever-changing: new players continually enter the market with disruptive technologies and business models; market, societal and geopolitical forces are in constant flux. These forces threaten the status quo of many organizations. However, these forces also trigger new business opportunities.

In this session Professor Peter Vogel will look at ways how organizations can build and develop intrapreneurs within, foster the ability, and agility, to seize untapped business opportunities.

In this session, Professor Patrick Reinmöeller will look at the wounded and vulnerable who dare to reveal weaknesses and become stronger by learning together about self-management, self-organization and human-centered take on strategy.
