In October 2013 I gave a presentation to the University of Oslo's Green IT School. The topic was on innovation and leadership in business given the evolving context we live in - where some issues are becoming existential.
Doing business in an environment that is volatile, unpredictable, complex and ambiguous demands a different kind of leadership; a different sense of calm if you will. Where does this come from? This was my attempt to relate a view on the contextual picture along with some principles of 'leadership from the future' that Veronica Lie, a Xyntéo colleague, and I wrote about in the run up to the 2013 Performance Theatre in Istanbul, Turkey - amazingly enough held at the precise time of the riots at Taksim square.
Enjoy - questions and comments appreciated.
