Thriving in Uncertainty 2012
Thursday, 12 July 2012 at 9:00 AM - Friday, 13 July 2012 at 4:00 PM (AEST)
Thriving in Uncertainty is for leaders, executives and managers, entrepeneurs, learning and development facilitators, trainers and educators, OD and HR practitioners, consultants, coaches and anyone who wants to bring more spontaneity, creativity, agilty and playfulness to their work or practice, for themselves and others.
An Experience You’ll Remember – Tools You’ll Use
If it's improved communication, better collaboration, to be more agile and responsive, to tap into people's creativity, or simply to have a motivated and enthusiastic team, then we can offer some ideas and approaches that will help.
The ability to respond when the way forward is unclear is a key skill for business success during times of uncertainty and change.
Today’s successful workplace uses new approaches and thinking to tackle entrenched problems, and its people have the ability to develop and maintain relationships, are creative with limited resources, create new stories for the future, successfully collaborate, and are agile and responsive.
It’s not enough to just bring our brains to work. We need to access and apply our whole intelligence to problem-solving, creativity and innovation, especially in the face of global and local social and environmental issues.
Applied improvisation is a key driver for business and organisational success during times of uncertainty and change.
Come to this conference and learn how to:
- do more with less
- successfully collaborate
- be more agile and responsive
- create new stories for the future
This is not a magic bullet - it's about developing your skills in spontaneity, and working better with less.
