Transformational Leadership for Business Agility

Add to calendar

Despite thinking that organizations are slow to innovate, innovation actually abounds at many companies. Kodak, DEC, and Xerox did not fail due to lack of new, cutting-edge innovation; they failed because their organizations were tuned to their traditional markets, and a failure to change their business models and organizations led to their eventual disruption. The key to achieving business agility lies in leadership that transforms organizations. Transformational leaders succeed by changing the system, leading with purpose, and steering from the edges. They own their responsibility and boldly lead their organizations into the future. It's time for all of us to undergo personal transformations and start leading for innovation, disruption, and business agility. Join Sanjiv Augustine to learn how to transform your organization to drive business agility with a flatter organizational structure, work-anywhere flexibility, participatory profit sharing, and delegated hiring and firing. Explore the necessary leadership journey, with its fears, challenges, and tribulations as well as its joys, triumphs, and unassailable business results.
