WIG Early Careers Network: Delivering in Uncertain Times
When we are faced with what seems like ever-escalating uncertainty, both inside and outside our organisations, how do we solve deep problems and continue to deliver with confidence?
The best leaders demonstrate the right balance of being able to move forward boldly, while remaining adaptable to changing circumstances. This sounds all very well in theory, but what does it look like in practice? And how do we know, moment to moment, what action to take, especially when the stakes look high and there is an imperative to act quickly.
In this facilitated discussion we will consider three core questions that emerging leaders can ask that will equip them and their teams for implementation in uncertain times.
- What is the best approach to making decisions in high-stakes and ambiguous situations?
- What is the key to maintaining performance and motivation when we are facing rapid or large-scale change?
- How do I manage effectively in an increasingly uncertain world?
The evening will take the form of a presentation followed by questions and discussion, as well as the usual networking.
