About this event

In the past two years we all have witnessed two things universally – Uncertainty (jobs, health, economy) & Rapid change (market conditions, customer preferences, national regulations, work place etc).

Building the capacity of leaders and equipping them to nimbly respond to the speed of change, adapt to uncertainty and not only bounce back but grow from setbacks is becoming increasingly important and urgent.

Just like physical workspaces are being revisited now, the skill sets and capabilities of our leaders and our people need revision too. Good leadership has always been important, but it is especially critical during change & uncertainty.

In this talk, Archana will present a model on “Collaborative Leadership” based on the research she has conducted during the pandemic with global leaders across domains and her own experience of over 20 years leading strategic projects and coaching leaders and teams. Archana will also draw upon the latest research from neuroscience, well-being, burnout, and the science of motivation.
