Ottawa 03.24.21 Brave New World: Leadership In The Digital Age
Hamza Khan will be speaking about leading in a digital age. This is particularly relevant now given the new necessary trend of having employees work from home.
McKinsey Global Institute's report, "Jobs Lost, Jobs Gained: Workforce Transitions in a Time of Automation," predicts that the world of work will be radically transformed by 2030. Working alongside tireless technology, the demand for more "human" skills—social and emotional skills, as well as other higher-level cognitive skills—particularly critical thinking, creativity, and complex information processing—will dramatically increase. Where will humans fit in tomorrow's workplace? And how can leaders help them to thrive? Drawing on contemporary examples of modern leaders such as New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Hamza Khan makes the case that by operationalizing the intertwined values of servitude, innovation, diversity, and empathy, leaders can guarantee that the rate of change inside of their organizations exceeds the rate of change on the outside. Whether you're a recently promoted leader, a leader on the track to promotion, or a leader keen on shifting your perspective, this talk will help you and your organization to change before you’re forced to change.
- Gain a deeper understanding of why ongoing and substantial and organizational change is required
- Receive a framework to operationalize and maximize the intertwined values of servitude, innovation, diversity, and empathy
- Appreciate the need for "modern leadership" (transformational, values-driven, change-friendly, and human-centric)
