"Leadership in Times of Disruption", Speaker Jennifer Young Baker, presented by the Central Region (Mooresville and West Lake Norman)


Topic: Leadership in Times of Disruption

Presentation Summary:  

The scale of change we will encounter during the next decade will surpass that of the past half-century. Although we have been talking about the "increasing rate of change" for more than 20 years, the extent of this disruptive change is now at unprecedented levels. Disruption requires businesses to continually challenge who they are and why they exist.  Leaders must reinvent their business in real-time: revising profit models, transforming market positions, and producing innovative and breakthrough products. Business agility is required to maintain core values while also managing to challenge everything else. With today's highly disruptive, competitive environments, business decisions must be driven by insights about one's organizational culture. For organizations to be successful, there must be real conversations about the economic and cultural challenges and questions facing the business. Are you ready?
