About the Event

Turbulent times put specific demands on leadership, whether in politics, trade, business, science or technology.  This turbulence will continue onwards, based on the literature and stakeholder consultations, and brings with it many interrelated consequences, such as organizational re-structuring, employee wellbeing, and engagement levels.  Leadership is built on a foundation of influence, yet without time for reflection and sensitivity towards emotional and social skills, tensions arise and influence cannot be gained. 

We find ourselves asking, what will this ‘new normal’ require as we work to create reflexive institutions and systems: Higher-level social functioning? Purposeful resilience in organizations?  Intentional space for deep reflection?  While to some these skills might come naturally, through their upbringing, lived experiences, profession, or interests, it becomes clear that many leaders never learned essential skills to manage complexity and often receive this just-in-time.  The socially constructed reality of present-day workplaces demands an entirely different level of skill and engagement for leaders.

Leading through turbulent times includes heightened self-awareness and the ability to connect with others who may hold different perceptions of norms, values, and how to engage constructively through tension.  This capacity-building workshop will offer case studies and tools related to the three key areas of: emotional intelligence, conflict competence, and reflective practice to support healthy workplaces that thrive through uncertainty.
