PROGRAMME THEME & OUTLINE HIGH PERFORMANCE LEADERSHIP IN TIMES OF CHANGE AND UNCERTAINTY

George Kohlrieser, Professor of Organizational Behavior at IMD, will discuss “High Performance: Leadership in Times of Change and Uncertainty – the challenge for High Performing Leaders”. Focusing on what leaders need to understand and do to create stability in an unstable world, Professor Kohlrieser will examine what followers need in order to remain fully committed, highly motivated and deeply engaged to achieve maximum results.

The latest research demonstrates that the mindset of the leader is the key. When leaders create a sense of security even in the most uncertain and dangerous environment, followers are protected from all the negative consequences of uncertainty. Once the correct mindset is in place, the behavior and language of the leader becomes their most powerful tool to influence and persuade others to collaborate and stay fully involved. This can be done with or without formal authority.

The leader as a lighthouse becomes the anchor to handle the big and small storms to help keep followers aligned regardless of how much turmoil surrounds them. Drawing on the studies of high performance leadership from business, sports, education, team and personal achievement, the workshop will translate this cutting-edge knowledge to the real world of leading in times of uncertainty.
