LEADING in the New World of Work

Jim Roach / Executive Director / TCU Neeley Executive Education

Trends such as AI, digitization, business model innovation and the ongoing pandemic are disrupting the way leadership gets done and challenging previous paradigms, causing organizations to seek leadership based upon adaptability, critical and creative thinking, and communication skills.  This conversation will focus on the implications of the changing world for work, leadership and organizations, and learning new ways of leading.


Highlights include:

  • Challenges for leading in a world of continuous transformation.
  • Top level paradigm shifts for leaders and organization including the challenge of “leading & scaling change”.
  • Why/where current mindsets & paradigms create significant barriers to making the needed shift in leadership.
