Join a group of business leaders for an interactive session on Business, Business Leadership and Leading on the Edge of Change.
What is the Edge?
Whenever there’s change, there’s an edge. There is an edge that puts you in front of the competition, a lead or advantage. And, there is an edge of being at the frontier of something new, a point or state immediately before something uncomfortable or momentous, the place between the known and unknown; the current and the new. The edge marks the threshold between what we know of our strengths, knowledge, and confidence and what we need to step into as a leader, team, and organisation in a new way of being and doing.
On the Edge of Change, people respond to change in various ways. Some embrace change and love to be on the cutting edge of the new. Others are change resistant, tending to hold on to tradition. And some prefer to take time to research and understand the change, before buy-in. Each approach has its strengths and challenges, experienced both personally, professionally and throughout business milestones.
Overall Learning Outcomes:
- Recognize strengths and challenges of three responses to change
- Identify primary approach to change
