In this session Keith Stopforth explored the world of leadership as it is now. The profound changes in society, commerce, technology and the global economy that are driving change at the fastest pace many leaders have ever known. Keith looked at leaders and how they can survive in this environment focusing on the four key areas that are central requirements for 21st century leaders to master:
The focus is on leaders at all levels and for those who have to lead without authority - such as project leaders. Often they have to influence and negotiate resources with people and this can draw on the four areas above even more intensely.
Projects often involve challenges such as meeting deadlines, building commitment and working with limited resources- perhaps more so for the interim project manager negotiating his/her way around companies with the pressure of tight deadlines. At these times resilience and learning agility are needed even more so.
Keith's style is to facilitate, be slightly provocative and get the audience thinking in groups so that the learning can be shared across the room
At the end of this session the audience will:
Have considered a different model of effective leadership and debated its flaws and merits
Have shared stories and practice and how they are resolving leadership challenges now
Be inspired to reconsider their own skills and what they need to develop these further
