Mr. Zeisler will draw on examples from his twenty years of consulting in leadership, change and innovation with companies and government institutions around the world as well as from lessons learned at the War College to make "Leading in a VUCA World" a significant learning event for everyone.
Why should you attend: Regardless of where you lead - in corporations, non-profits, government - you face four increasingly precarious and unfamiliar conditions: Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. Dealing effectively with VUCA is the essence of strategic leadership.
Recognizing VUCA's potential impacts on people; gaining insights on the neuroscience change; getting clear about where you are going and communicating that story; developing an agile and innovative organization that can make sense of the ambiguities and respond effectively are the keys to superior leadership in these conditions.
