Can we fit long-term thinking with the busyness of everyday life and an unstable situation in our world? In times of complexity where we don’t have a clear sight. How do we navigate in a transforming marketplace with a steady stream of opportunities and challenges? How do we adapt as we go, yet keep course? What’s the implications on management and governance? This seminar will address some key paradoxes of work in the 21st century:
Clarity & Uncertainty
Short-term & Long-term
Governance & Emergence
You will learn how to enable organisations to shift focus from…
… Alignment to Coherence
… Standards to Situations-based
