Change in the biotech and high-tech workplace is ever-present and constant. The pace of innovation today is so much faster than what we experienced in the past. This creates challenges in how we lead, one of the most important aspects of our ability to be successful.
Most of us deal with change one of the following ways:
- We ignore it (which doesn’t work)
- We try to control it (which can’t really be done)
- We try to predict it (to a degree – but then reality changes)
- We respond to it
Responding to change is like facing a wave as you stand in the ocean: you can stand your ground and get knocked off your feet, or you can dive into it and come out the other side calm and steady. In order to respond effectively to any challenge you face, you need to develop multiple capacities: clarity, vision, understanding, and agility.
This series of two one-day workshops (on Nov 15 & Dec 13) is specifically designed for leaders in organizations experiencing volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) on a daily basis. The program will help you to cultivate the foundational self-leadership skills for maintaining your effectiveness in high-pressure, high-stakes environments.
