HAPPY AT WORK FORUM 2021
in partnership with Swedish Swiss Chamber of Commerce
On-line event, 3rd of June, 12.30 – 2.00 pm
The business landscape is undeniably shifting. We have just experienced around five years’ evolution of digital transformation in just one year.
In this fast changing context, it is essential to adapt the leadership to the new reality and challenges we are facing.
Real change is required in the way we lead! While some aspects of leadership will remain, future leaders will need to possess a new set of skills and mindsets to lead effectively.
This is because our businesses will look and operate fundamentally differently which means we need a new type of leader at the helm of our organisations.
Let’s prepare together the leadership of tomorrow!
during the WEBINAR you will:
- Explore the new future of work agenda for organisations following the pandemic,
- See how leadership is evolving for the new world of work,
- Discover the new set of skills and mindset required of tomorrow’s leaders and learn how to develop and use them,
- Better understand the current and future business landscape and realize how to thrive in a context collapse,
- Learn leadership best practices from IKEA and other corporates,
- Develop the capability to adapt a more human-centric leadership,
- Interact with speakers and participants on how to prepare for the future.
