'Resilient Leadership: Challenging Business Paradigms’

Established corporate norms, values and practices are struggling to respond to the challenges of the 21st century – there is a structural and cultural challenge of crisis in finance, environment and corporate purpose and responsibility.

‘Resilient Leadership’ will explore what it means to be a leader and how as leaders we can develop and maintain the capacity to skilfully challenge the status quo and elegantly facilitate change.

A study by Korn-Ferry found that 90% of leaders were let go due to physical or mental conditions that impaired their leadership effectiveness. In the same study one in three CEO’s rated resilience alongside ‘drive’ and above ‘intelligence’ (29%) and influence (21%) as key characteristics of future CEO’s*.

Resilience is often seen as that ineffable quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. A public event on 16 October sees renowned practitioners come together to explore ‘Resilient Leadership’. Utilising training, leadership, organisational and story-telling the contributors include;
