Workshops – organisational resilience and effective leadership

Online (on Zoom) 30th November, 14.00-16.00 CET, 9th December 14.00-16.00

In today’s world, the hyper change and disruption swirling around leaders is unprecedented. Global threats such as COVID-19 and changing ecosystems are making the task of sustaining and growing an organization immensely difficult. In the context of EPR’s two-year theme of Digital Transformation, the board of directors proposed the topic of leading remote organisations for the leadership workshop, also known as the Workshop for Directors. Within this theme, the two workshops led by the Centre for Creative Leadership will address Building Organisational Resilience and Effective Leadership.

The first workshop will be held online via Zoom on the 30th of November, the second on 9th December. Session One will cover Building Organizational Resilience and the second session, Effective Leadership, through the Direction, Alignment, Commitment approach. For more information about the two sessions and the programme for the first workshop, have a look here below.
