Leadership 2030: Navigating the contradictions, tensions and opportunities
Joint Program with LSE, the London School of Economics, in English
The world is constantly evolving, but the pace of change has never been so rapid.
The latest series of changes promise to produce true innovation that will both reinvent and disrupt our future. From advances in AI, to the far-reaching implications of automation and climate change, humanity is about to face its most pressing threats and promising opportunities.
Business leaders often deal with change in isolation. In reality, however humanity’s greatest challenges are developing simultaneously and generate new contradictions for business and organisations. To respond to these major shifts, you have to understand and approach them holistically. It is only by immersing ourselves in the nature of these challenges, that we can understand them more deeply and discover new connections between them. This is how organizations can develop the most effective solutions to the opportunities and tensions that lie ahead.
Our two-week executive retreat focuses on the challenges facing the next generation of business leaders, and explores the most appropriate and practical solutions. It is an ideal opportunity to take a step back, consider the bigger picture, and begin to develop solutions that will be necessary for the decade to come.
The secret to success is good leadership, and good leadership is all about making the lives of your team members or workers better.
— Tony Dungy
